Cool New Facebook Skin for Your Account [Facebook Spam Alert]

There is a new facebook spam rolling out across Facebook, that says “cool new facebook skin for your account —>> http://getyxxxxxxxxxxxxx.c.la/ <<— get yours before others and show it to your friends ….. limited offer -before the end of the year 2011″ and it automatically tags your friends to spread faster across your friends network. The following are two possible solutions that can be tried to protect your account and make sure to not further spread across your friends network.

As a temporary solution you may unfriend the person and add him / her once the account back to normal. If they have clicked and approved an application access to their facebook account, this spam automatically posted on the facebook timeline continuously with a 30 seconds or less than that interval. So in few minutes your entire facebook timeline will contain only this spam message.

We also have a tutorial to prevent this kind of attack by protecting your facebook timeline. Do read “How to Protect Facebook Timeline ?”.

Thanks for reading and please do share this post to let your friends know about this new threat and have a safe and secure facebook experience.
