[h1]Anonymous Blamed for Porn Flood Drowning Facebook[/h1]
Now is a good time to jump over to Google+ while Anonymous begins to take control of Facebook.

Has offensive material appeared in your Facebook news feed over the last twenty-four hours? If so, you're not alone, as security firm Sophos has confirmed the sudden-yet-offensive problem.

According to reports made by Facebook users, news feed content and personal messages now include explicit hardcore porn images, Photoshopped photos of celebrities in sexual situations, pictures of extreme violence and a photograph of an abused dog. That said, workers may need to get their Facebook fill at home rather than on the job until the porn flood has been contained... unless you work within the porn industry, that is.

News of the problem began to surface as Facebook users took to Twitter to vent their anger. The complaints universally point out that porn-posters are unaware that their accounts have been compromised to publish the offensive material. Even more, they can't even see the images posted on their wall or in their message box after logging on.

"One of my friend's accounts was compromised and messages containing a video were sent," reads one Twitter post. "My daughter's boyfriend had something posted on his wall that he couldn't see on his computer, but my daughter could see on his wall from hers."

"I had to deactivate my FB after all that Jesus porn... I just can't risk my position in heaven looking like I posted that mess," another user Tweeted. That's right, porn related to Jesus is making the rounds across Facebook as well.

"I have 5000 friends," said actress and director Courtney Zito. "My feed is littered with porn. I can't even check my news feed with anyone around because of it. Just saw one with a guy who had his skull bashed in and his brains on the street. Another one was the devil... Besides the countless naked girls. I'm about ready to deactivate."

Currently Sophos isn't sure how the offending content has been spread across Facebook, but assumes that it stems from a successful dose of spam.

"Whether users are falling for a clickjacking scheme, are being tagged in content without their knowledge, have poorly chosen privacy settings, have been tricked into installing malicious code, or have fallen victim to another vulnerability inside Facebook itself," Sophos reports. "What's clear, however, is that mischief-makers are upsetting many Facebook users and making the social networking site far from a family-friendly place."

But numerous reports are now pointing to a threat made by Anonymous, a threat to attack Facebook using a powerful "Guy Fawkes virus" they developed. According to the hacktivist group, it's a highly sophisticated work that takes control of your Facebook account and spreads to your friends' accounts without you actually being logged in.

"After the worm gets under control, Anonymous will use this to its advantage against corruption, and as an alternative attack towards groups who take on Anonymous," the group states in the video seen below, blatantly admitting to the Facebook attack back on Thursday. "We are Anonymous. We are a legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us."

As of this writing, Facebook has not issued an official statement.

[h1]Facebook Speaks Up On Recent Porn Flood[/h1]



The wash of porn and violent images flooding Facebook over the last 48 hours was due to an XSS exploit in an unnamed browser, Facebook claims.



Wednesday Facebook said that it has finally stopped most of the spam that flooded news feeds and inboxes over the last 48 hours with images of graphic violence, porn and animal abuse. Facebook officials are blaming the attack’s success on a cross-site scripting (XSS) exploit in a particular unnamed web browser, and even admits that they know who attacked the social website... and it wasn't Anonymous.

"During this spam attack, users were tricked into pasting and executing malicious JavaScript in their browser URL bar causing them to unknowingly share this offensive content," officials said in a statement to Mashable. "No user data or accounts were compromised during this attack. Our engineers have been working diligently on this self-XSS vulnerability in the browser."

"We’ve built enforcement mechanisms to quickly shut down the malicious Pages and accounts that attempt to exploit it," Facebook continues. "We have also been putting those affected through educational checkpoints so they know how to protect themselves. We’ve put in place backend measures to reduce the rate of these attacks and will continue to iterate on our defenses to find new ways to protect people."

Sophos claims that it was difficult for Facebook to address the issue because the problem didn't reside on the website itself, but within the unnamed browser instead. The security firm also stressed that Facebook users were likely enticed to throw malicious JavaScript into their browser because of some kind of contest, giveaway or sweepstakes that required contestants to copy and paste a "magic code" to win a "fantastic" prize.

"The bigger question is what motivated the attackers to use this flaw in such a strange way?" writes Chester Wisniewski of Sophos. "We investigate lots of Facebook scams here at Naked Security, and I would guess that nearly 100-percent of them lead to some financial payout for the scammer. This seems to be a purely malicious act."

By pasting the "magic code" into the browser’s address bar, Facebook users were unknowingly sharing graphic content with their Facebook friends. The offensive content spread like wildfire because friends clicked on the links thinking they were shared on purpose. Sophos suggests that Facebook users keep informed about the latest scams spreading fast across Facebook and other internet attacks.

On Wednesday Facebook said that it's currently working with its legal team to take appropriate actions against the unnamed hacker responsible for the attack. In the meantime, users are encouraged to run a virus or malware scan on their system, remove any unwanted or suspicious Facebook apps, change their password, make sure the browser is up to date, and report anything unusual. Finally, don't copy and paste code into the address bar unless the source is confirmed to be legit.
