30.05.2013 - Facebook Hijack via browser plugin
Microsoft has realeased a security post warning of a harmful Web browser plugin that could hijack a userâ€™s Facebook account and post on their behalf.
According to Microsoft this malware monitors a user to see if they are currently logged onto Facebook and then attempts to get a configuration file from the hackers website. This file includes a list of commands that the browser extension will do.
Once a Facebook account is infected, the malware can perform several activities on the userâ€™s account, include posting on behalf of the user.
Microsoft has already observed the harmful browser plugin post the following message with a malicious link "15 YEAR-OLD VICTIM OF BULLYING COMMITS SUICIDE AFTER SHOWING HER BREASTS ON FACEBOOK." If you see this pop up as a comment from one of your friends, it's more than likely not legit
