    I don't know what's been going on with those sites recently, but they were some of the first sites to put a page title/ads/like button up that people could add their own pages to. They've been all over facebook for a few months.

    Well yea, how do you think people who phish FB spread their script? This is one of the main ways and this is nothing new; it was happening on MySpace before FB came along, it was just automatically spreading in a different way.

    It is really not hard to fight these "worms" at all. Most anti-virus programs and web browsers will detect the domains these scripts are being hosted on as "Web Forgery" (or something of the sort) before FB even gets a chance to mark them as abusive themselves. If you are really serious, just buy 200 bulletproof domains and spread; once all (or most) of your domains are detected and blocked, rinse and repeat. Owned.

    Note: I highly suggest against anyone doing anything of the sort. It is nothing but trouble if you do not know exactly what you are doing.
