Facebook Hacked: Porn and Filth Flood Millions of Facebook Accounts at Random (VIDEO)

Facebook Hacked: Porn and Filth Flood Millions of Facebook Accounts at Random (VIDEO)

Facebook has been under heavy attack the last couple of days as the social networking site has become the latest victim of a severe hacking spree affecting many users at random.

Facebook is the new Myspace in terms of profile safety. Myspace's demise was partially due to incessant hacking, which caused frustrated users to switch over to the "safer" Facebook. However, Mark Zuckerberg's creation is experiencing problems far worse than Myspace ever had.

The hacks do not seem to have specific targets but happen at random with some user’s news feeds being littered with objectionable content and others not seeing anything.

Some of the hacks happen in the form of "click' spam being sent out. Popular spams involve Kim Kardashian or Miley Cyrus with a link to a video. It will say something like "After watching this video I lost all respect for (insert name)." Upon clicking, the link is a dead end, and hacks the account sending the same spam to all of the user’s friends.

Other spams include mass messages and tagged photos leading people to believe they are in the link or involved with it because it is sent to so many people. Those will also have the same result, and continue the spamming of others walls.

Not only is the hacking annoying and a security risk, but something a bit more alarming and disturbing has happened over the last couple of days.

The news feed for many has become a porn and gore infested snuff list of nude photos and videos, graphic scenes of death, and blasphemous mockeries of faith through pornography involving Jesus.

Users are outraged and some are considering deleting their profiles. Actress and director, Courtney Zito, told The Christian Post, "I have 5000 friends. My feed is littered with porn. I can't even check my news feed with anyone around because of it."

She said some of these images show up on the feed while others come through the mail. "Just saw one with a guy who had his skull bashed in and his brains on the street. I'm about ready to deactivate...," she said.

Some people are blaming the super hack group "Anonymous," after they made threats against the company in August because of the lack of privacy users have on it. The group set their eyes on Nov. 5 as the day they would "kill" Facebook, but the day came and went with no foreseeable action.

However, a number of users have been posting the YouTube video threat as of late saying it's finally happening. Vinnie Torres warned his Facebook friends with the video and a status that said, "ANONYMOUS IS GONNA KILL FB. THIS MONTH. TONS OF VIRUSES N SPAM MAIL..."

Website developer Robert M. Pimpsner does not believe the hype. "I don’t take them seriously. This is the same group that said they will take down the NY Stock Exchange, Amazon and several other companies. The result was nothing. Also the date has long since past with no issues," he told CP.

He continued by talking about the safety measures one can take to protect themselves from such hacks. "It’s called being smart about what you click on. I have had ZERO issues with porn on FB. I keep my security levels at high levels to protect my privacy and only share with those I wish to at a specific time. Most people don't do that they just leave it open."

"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 of media they inhabit.

As many Facebook users log out and await a solution, the remaining social networkers should proceed with caution and hopefully Facebook can fix itself or offer some kind of help.

What do you think? Have you been hacked or seen some of the objectionable materials?
