When I access my Facebook account, I often receive my friends' wall-posts which often include a link. Right after clicking on the link, it moves to a Facebook login page. Entering the login information on this page, after some time, I cannot login my Facebook account again (notify me that password is incorrect) but my account still posts on my friends' walls as image below. Can Bkav explain this problem and instruct me how to prevent it?
