Quick note about something that many people on Facebook are running into. There appears to be a Facebook post hack or virus or scam (not really sure what form it is taking since we have not seen it live in the wild yet) where it appears that someone posts a message to their wall that says “www,ArticleGet,cn I heard some ppl in my family talkin about this during Thanxgiving. Check it out”
Articleget.cn appears to link to a traditional Easy Google Profit scam fake news site at first glance. There certainly may be some other dastardly doings in the background once you load the site, so I would not suggest going to the site.
If you see a friend that has posted this, warn them immediately. They either have:
- Installed a rogue Facebook application that is posting bogus messages like this to their wall.
- Have a virus or malware on their computer that has given away their Facebook name and password and someone is using it for spamming scam links
Either way, clean it up stat!
If anyone has more information, please add a comment below. Is it something posted to a friends wall like it came directly from that person, or does it appear to be from an App they installed?
