SPAM ALERT: “Who Has Deleted Ya” Facebook app

19 Dec

You might have already seen on your or your friends’ Facebook wall an application called “Who Has Deleted Ya”. CLICK on it! No no no!! Just kidding!! Don’t click on it, of course… are you crazy?

Anyway, this is yet another one of those spam applications that collect your personal information for advertisement purposes, and thanks to my friends at All Facebook it is now made public. The app looks something like this:

The good news is there are many sites like this one, All Facebook, Mashable (score!!), etc, that are paying attention and will inform you of new attacks. The bad news is that spammers are for now winning as some of the most promising Facebook advances against spammers has left Facebook defeated.

Otherwise this post would’ve never been created.

Cheers!
