Spammers decided to take advantage of a vulnerability that has been discovered in Facebook, where it will spread auto-replicating links without the need for social engineering to come into the picture. All that one needs to do is click on any application spam links to “share” the application to the user’s wall. It is good to know that such links have already stopped working since late Monday, which means the good people over at Facebook have managed to contain this threat. All in all, it pays to know what you’re clicking on, so don’t go get all that naive!
