Facebook Hacking: Facebook Fighting Porn and Gore Attack Hitting Millions

Monday was the worst attack in the site’s history with an estimated 50 percent of users being hacked, their accounts filled with photos and videos depicting graphic scenes of death, nudity, child porn, and even porn involving Jesus.

Facebook had earlier released a statement saying: “Protecting the people who use Facebook from spam and malicious content is a top priority.

 “We are always working to improve our systems to isolate and remove material that violates our terms...we have recently experienced an increase in reports and we are investigating and addressing the issue.”

Many have feared that the hacking group known as “Anonymous” might be behind the disruption of normal Facebook service, based on threats the group or members of the group have made recently concerning disrupting or “killing” FB due to privacy issues.

"Anonymous" released a public statement through their media sites stating the attack wasn't by them, but it is uncertain who represents Anonymous because of the many outlets they inhabit.

According to the website Gawker, the plot to “Kill” Facebook has been a misunderstanding, a campaign which was spread out of control by splinter members of the group.
