FACEBOOK STALKING IS a favourite past-time of many internet users but around two million of them will think twice before ever doing it again.
They all fell for a scam which promised to allow them to view naked videos of their Facebook friends, but gave them a computer virus instead.
Talk about suffering the consequences of creeping, eh?
USA Today reports that the ‘Naked Friends Video’ scam presented users with an advertisement showing a friend’s picture and the words ‘See (Friend)’s naked video’ or ‘(Friend Name’s) Private Video’.
Those who clicked the link to the ‘naked video’ were led to a realistic-looking YouTube page, where they were prompted to download a fake Abode Flash Player in order to watch it.
That’s when the hackers struck, infecting their computers with malware instead of revealing those sought after videos.
Perhaps next time they’ll think twice before heading off on an elaborate Facebook stalk.
