Facebook Wall Posting Scam

Today, we highlight another scam that Computerweekly.com believes will be one of the biggest online scams of 2011, based on the security firm, Knowthenet.org.uk.

Facebook users should always use caution if they see a strange website link that is on your wall or in a friend's status updates.
