A bogus tool for hacking Facebook accounts is making the rounds and turning the tables on unsuspecting jerks.
PCWorld explains how the tool works.
The seed of the scam is a video on Facebook that claims to offer a tool for obtaining login credentials for friends’ accounts. Instead, it hacks the person’s own account, said Satnam Narang, security response manager for Symantec, in a blog post.
The scam has been successful — It was used earlier this year to inflate the “like” count on some pages by 50,000 to 100,000.
Honestly, touch crap. You download something with the intent of being a dick, you get dickish things happen in return. Am I supposed to feel bad? It’s like showing sympathy for a bank robber getting shot. If only he could go back in time and not rob the back.
Actually, for the bank robbery correlation to work, it would be like shooting a bank robber before he even left the house.
