Today I received a wall post on facebook from one of my friends that appears to be a video entitled "Barack Obama Hillary Clinton - Sex Scandal".

Barack Obama Hillary Clinton - Sex Scandal - Facebook

I thought that it was a trusted link and my friend really wanted to share it to me so I clicked on the link anyway. After that, I noticed a very suspicious request and is asking for my permission. So I didn't bothered to continue because I am very much against those kind of security thingy.

This is very alarming because it comes with a personalized message containing your name plus the request that you should check it out. To think that this is one of the top websites in the world!

I did some research and found out that this facebook app contains a virus that SPAMS YOUR FRIENDS. It sends messages to your contacts without you knowing about it.. Unlike the other apps that ask permissions first, this one doesn't.

Many members including myself already reported this. Beware of clicking apps because this is not the end of scam sites like this.

Did you encounter this scam page on facebook too?
