ClickJacking Worm Invading Facebook

 Number of victims exceeds hundreds of thousands, uses a combination of social engineering and clickjacking exploit makes it appear as if a user has “liked” a link.

The messages that are being used in the link text include, “LOL This girl gets OWNED after a POLICE OFFICER reads her STATUS MESSAGE,” “This man takes a picture of himself EVERYDAY for 8 YEARS!!,” “The Prom Dress That Got This Girl Suspended From School” and “This Girl Has An Interesting Way Of Eating A Banana, Check It Out!”

How it works…When a user clicks on the text that appears to be “liked” s/he is taken to a new blank page that just has the text, “Click here to continue.” If s/he clicks anywhere on that page the same message will be published to that users Facebook page.

"You Will See A Text Like This One"

Until now it doesn’t appear as if the worm does anything other than add likes to your feed, but if you’ve been infected, you should take action. Such as deleting any entries in your news feed related to the links and checking your profile and info pages to make sure that no links or pages related to those sites have been added to your profile, also you should run Anti-Virus scan.
