Wednesday, April 29, 2009 Link in Facebook is a Scam

 As reported on Mashable:

Facebook (Facebook reviews) is falling prey to a widespread phishing attack today that tries to steal your login and spam your friends.

I’ve got a number of messages in my Facebook inbox with links to “”, a site that displays a fake Facebook login. Enter your details there, and it will spam all your friends with the same message and link. More worrying: you might get locked out of your account for a time until Facebook sorts out this mess.

There is no malicious payload with the attack, it seems: no virus is downloaded or any other nasties: it’s simply a huge nuisance for Facebook users.

As always, don’t enter your Facebook password if the URL is not, and contact Facebook if you’re no longer able to access your account.

The topic was "creating content that catches fire."

This event was also where I debuted my "how does your garden grow?" analogy which is already catching fire. Want to know what it is? Ask me!
