There Really Is NO Dislike Button!

How many times have you wished that FaceBook had a “dislike” button?.  Well, I know that there have been many times when I wanted one, and my wife mentioned the same thing just yesterday.  Want to guess what hackers are targetting next?  At some point in time, you are going to see a message posted on your wall, offering you the opportunity to install a Dislkie Button.  Don’t frickin’ believe it!  If FaceBook were to introduce such a feature, it will be amid a big media fanfare, and with mucho publicity.  Not some scurvy little wall posting out of the blue.

This is not a new scam, it has been around since 2010, as evidenced in this MSNBC article, it’s just being revived and making the rounds once again.  Clicking on the link within the bogus message will cause the same consequences whcih you might have experienced with the “Check who is visiting your profile” scam.  The link contains obfuscated javascript, and will be posted on the walls of random friends, continuing the infection cycle.

Trust everyone at your FaceBook table, but always remember to cut the cards.
