Breaking news about Facebook and yet again it is all for wrong reasons. A new spam is making rounds which is spreading like wildfire. It goes like this – “[Name], this is without doubt the sexiest video ever! 😛 😛 :P”
It entices the users with Candid Camera Prank and what more, it’s a HQ (high quality) version video! The accompanying image should make most men click it without a second thought.
Clicking on the video actually redirects you to some oooas_wqqa Facebook app. This should be enough of an indicator of a spam app, but if you still go ahead and install the app, it will automatically posts a wall message to your friends.
In case you have fallen prey to the scam and installed the app, Go to Account on top right tab bar, Click that and select Application Setting under that and remove access to the app named “winamp“.
This is not the first time Facebook has been hit with spam apps. Remember the Pay to Use Facebook pages and ‘Who is Checking my Facebook Profile’ spam apps? Alas! Facebook hasn’t learnt anything from them. They still don’t seem to have proper screening of apps before approving them.
Have I started to admire Apple for their handling of App store?
