Facebook Clickjacking Attack Spreading Through ‘Likes’

A new clickjacking worm is spreading through Facebook via the ‘Like’ feature. The attack, which is said to have hit hundreds of thousands of users, uses a combination of social engineering and clickjacking exploit makes it appear as if a user has “liked” a link.

When a user clicks on the text that appears to be “liked” he is taken to a blank page that just has the text, “Click here to continue.” Clicking anywhere on that page will then publish the same message to that users Facebook page.
