    [h=1]Facebook scare in Bangalore[/h]

    The recent Facebook hack has reportedly claimed over 2 lakh victims in Bangalore. According to a news report in Mid Day, some two lakh Facebook users in Bangalore had their accounts hacked and weblinks to their morphed pornographic pictures sent as feeds to friends and family.

    Quoting social networking analysts, the report says that more than 2 lakh Bangalore Facebook accounts were hacked. The cybercrime department too is reported to have received calls and complaints regarding the mass hacking.

    According to the report, there are around 50 posts on Facebook stating that the users are quitting the social networking site forever after being embarrassed before friends and family.

    Earlier, Facebook Inc claimed that it has identified those responsible for the deluge of hardcore porn and violent images in some users' newsfeeds, and said it is working with its legal team "to ensure appropriate consequences follow."

    The social networking company made the statement after porn, pictures of extreme violence and faked photos of celebrities such as Justin Bieber in sexual situations had overrun the profiles of some Facebook users.

    Facebook said that it has "drastically limited the damage caused" by a spam attack that took advantage of a browser vulnerability. "Protecting the people who use Facebook from spam and malicious content is a top priority for us," Palo Alto, California-based Facebook said in a statement.

    Users were tricked into pasting malware into their browsers, which in turn resulted in the sharing of offensive content, Facebook said.

    Most people on Facebook are able to embarrass themselves. I have children, and a sister, on FB and would not dare to visit their pages. :-(

    I don't use facebook. Anyway the 2 Lakh idiots are to blame for malware content on their computers.

    If they can't handle a facebook account I wonder how they can handle bank accounts and other high security sites. You may as well give away your money.

    golden rules of FB
    1. Never upload you personal and family pics (specially girls).
    2. never click on any link or URL if title is too catchy and too many people are reposting or sharing that.
    3. dont bother to open any link in your message section or if any of friends post it in chat or in your timeline .

    Platinum rule of Facebook. Dont create a Facebook Account.
    How stupid can we be if we are ok with freely giving away your personal life to a sick corporation that is profiting by peering into your life?
