Facebook users hit by porn attack

Posted on: November 16, 2011


Facebook Inc said that it is investigating a rash of unsolicited graphic images that hit some users’ accounts this week.

The images, internet links and videos depicting pornography and violence have hit some people’s Facebook newsfeeds in recent days.

“We experienced a coordinated spam attack that exploited a browser vulnerability,” Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes said in a statement emailed to Reuters. “Our efforts have drastically limited the damage caused by this attack, and we are now in the process of investigating to identify those responsible.”

Facebook does not know yet who was behind the attack and a motive was not clear, Noyes added during an interview with Reuters.
