In the last two weeks thousands of Facebook users fell for a so-called likejacking scam. A link on Facebook invites you to see for example the 101 hottest women in the world and leads you to an external website. No matter where you click on the webpage, a message saying that you “like” the link will be automatically displayed on your Facebook wall and in the news section for your friends, waiting for your friends to be clicked again and again … and again. Sex stills sells!
This method isn’t very sophisticated nor is it new, but it’s obviously still very effective, as these links are heavily spreading through Facebook. So will you click the next link you see on Facebook? Be careful and if it looks suspicious – just don’t click!
