descriptionFacebook Warns of Clickjacking Scam

Security firm Sophos recently discovered a new clickjacking scam on Facebook that spreads via the social network's "share" feature and could be costing you $5 a week. The new malware is similar to a so-called "likejacking" worm discovered last May. But instead of exploiting Facebook's "Like" button, the new scam uses the "Share" feature that posts content to your profile wall where your friends are encouraged to click on it.

This is the second Facebook scam reported on by Sophos in recent days. On Monday, the security firm alerted Facebook users to an enticing scam that allowed you to add a "Dislike" button to your profile.

Security firm issued a warnibg to Facebook users over a new clickjacking scam that milks $5 a week from cellular phone accounts by exploiting Facebook's "Share" feature. The dislike button scam and Facebook clickjacking scam have both come at the very same time. Facebook buttons that don’t really exist, like the clickjacking scam last May, are what these scams use. Facebook users can protect themselves against the growing list of scams by learning how to recognize typical red flags.
