    Facebook in Germany said the latest attack tricked users into pasting and executing malicious JavaScript in their browser URL bar, exploiting a browser vulnerability that caused them to unknowingly share the content, according to a statement to news agency dapd.

    "Our team responded quickly and we have eliminated most of the spam caused by this attack," the statement said. "We are now working to improve our systems to better defend against similar attacks in the future."

    Yeah I saw those naked pictures of women posted by my friends unintentionally because they accidentally click this malicious link spreading around Facebook. It is wise that we should not click or like any suspicious link.
