Recently, when I access Facebook, I often receive informations written on the wall by friends, clicking on the link, I find a Facebook login page. After entering the login information from this page for a while, I cannot log in my Facebook (warning of wrong password) and see my account writing on the friends’ walls as shown below. Why is there such a phenomenon? Can Bkav explain and tell me how to prevent it?
The cause of the phenomenon you describe is because you have logged in your Facebook account information to a fake website that has the same interface as the Facebook login page created by bad guys in order to steal Facebook accounts and spead malicious links. After obtaining your Facebook account, bad guys continue to spread the malicious link on the wall according to your existing friendlist.
The information written on the wall or sent via message, chat uses the elements of curiosity, confusion and wonder to lure users into clicking on the links. When users click on these links, they will experience the same phenomenon as you.
