Facebook Under Serious Porno Attack!
By James Lenhart

Word on the street says that Facebook is under attack by porn spreading hackers, although, we’ve been unable to spot any pornographic images at this time. According to Facebook, they will begin fighting back just as soon as they figure out how their network was attacked. Some reports say that violent pornographic images were being spotted in the news feed and were shared through their friends’ account. The victim is unaware that they are the ones spreading the images, which makes this somewhat of a cruel joke — but a joke nonetheless.

“Protecting the people who use Facebook from spam and malicious content is a top priority for us and we are always working to improve our systems to isolate and remove material that violates our terms,” Facebook spokesperson Andrew Noyes said. “We have recently experienced an increase in reports and we are investigating and addressing the issue.”

The Washington Post suggests that this attack could stem from those that go under the name “Anonymous”, but that’s old news since Facebook said this was a malicious trick played on the people who chose to accept permissions to a bogus script through their browser. This wouldn’t be the first time for Facebook, nor the last.
