Look out for a fake link leading to a supposed “Fiona Xie sex video”.
The latest scam spreading on Facebook deceives users into ‘liking’ a webpage on Facebook without knowing what the link leads to.
In this scam, a Facebook link shows a picture of Fiona Xie sitting in a bathtub.
The text on the link reads: “Fiona Xie. Is she REALLY as innocent as she looks?
“Private sexual videos of famous Singapore celebrities here. Only enter if you are 18 years old and above.”
Users are fooled into believing that others have already ‘Liked’ the link and are thus encouraged to click it as well.
Internet security company Sophos warns:
“Unfortunately for you, however, this is a honeytrap that takes your browser to a webpage which uses the clickjacking technique to fool you into unknowingly saying you ‘Like’ the page yourself. And in this way, the message spreads virally across Facebook.”
Clickjacking, or ‘likejacking’ scams get users to click on items on webpages without knowing what they are actually clicking on.
Even though this link may not contain any malware or virus, you will be embarrassed that your Facebook friends now know you were seeking for sex videos of Fiona Xie.
