Has anyone else been noticing these viruses on facebook? Someone hacks the account and tries to spread viruses. The links look like this:

It’s nothing new. People have been doing this for a long time now. Just don’t click links unless you know where they go.

Yeah, there are worse things than Goatse or 2G1C.
Goatse is actually rather mild.

I read somewhere its actually not a hack. The user has clicked on a link somewhere in facebook and somehow it just users their details to either post on peoples wall, or send them a message with that message and a link to a site with a virus.

Yeah, I was wondering how my friends could still access their accounts after they sent the link.

But that brings up the question… who posted the link first?

Yeah because even if they change their password and do whatever, i think it will still use their account to send out the links. Not too sure though if facebook somehow has blocked it or something.
