    Have you guys seen this? http://www.cnn.com/2011/11/15/tech/social-media/facebook-porn-spam/index.html

    Looks like it is clickjacking. Wondering if this is just a malicious attack or if they are monetizing somehow? What do you guys think of this?

    I tell you something, that Graham Cluley is a fucking troll. If I met him in the street I would punch him in the face for sure.

    To show how much of a massive troll he is, he highlights how little he knows about this shit buy telling the world its "clickjacking". When in actual fact its the copy and paste javascript thats doing all this damage.

    I couldn't agree more. Most of the top dog "tech journalists" are so ignorant it's hurting. Even if I understand their task is to divulge on CNN rather than delve into the mechanics of a topic it greatly sucks to read how little they know of most stuff they scribble about...
