Facebook Hackers Posting Invisible Porn To Your Profile? NOPE!

Posted by on November 14, 2011 at 11:59 pm

Facebook? Hackers? PORN?! Over the last few days, there’s been a rumor circulating through the interwebs that says Facebook hackers are posting porn to your Facebook profile. According to a number of web security experts, this is a complete hoax.

Read on for more.

People on Facebook are posting this message just as much as they were the rumor about Facebook starting to charge users. Some versions of the message you may see are:

URGENT WARNING TO ALL: Hackers are posting sexual videos and pictures on your walls!!! You dont see them, but your friends do, then it seems as if you posted it!! Copy this as your status to protect your name!!!

And:

THE HACKERS ARE PUTTING SEXUAL VIDEOS TO YOUR NAME IN THE WALLS / PROFILES OF YOUR FRIENDS WITHOUT YOU KNOWING IT. YOU DONT SEE IT, BUT OTHER PEOPLE CAN SEE IT, AS IF THESE WERE A PUBLICATION THAT YOU MADE! ALSO, THEY’RE SENDING INBOX MSGS TO YOUR FRIENDS ASKING YOU TO CLICK A LINK. DON’T DO IT!! SO IF YOU RECEIVE SOMETHING FROM ME ABOUT A VIDEO OR A STRANGE INBOX MESSAGE, IT’S NOT ME!

And:

Hackers are busy on Facebook. They are posting insulting messages on the walls of your friends with your regards without you knowing about it. They are also sending out X-rated pictures. If you receive one of those messages in my name, it isn’t from me. I would NEVER disrespect any of my FB friends! Put this on your wall and warn your friends. Share the news! And please tell me if something is on your wall that is supposed to have come from me

We do know that people have been posting some pornographic thumbnails on people’s profiles but those images are not and have never been invisible to the owner of the profile. We also know that Facebook is smashing these as soon as they are discovered.

If you get this message, please DO NOT forward it on or paste it to your profile. You’re just perpetuating yet another horrible hoax and making more and more people think this kind of shit is funny.

Please don’t make me slap you.

Thanks!

      I guess it is not a complete hoax.. i just received three posts from a friend of mine, sexually explicit pictures/graphics.. and am certain that the concerned friend cant see them on his wall… i have reported it to FB… its better to be cautious than to repent later

  • Shellieevans55

    Rumor or not, this a great way to cover your ass after making drunk posts! XD

      Indeed :)

    You know what’s probably the worst thing about “the interwebs”? It’s people who don’t have a clue what they’re talking about posting complete BS. This post is completely false. Here’s what one expert had to say, “”It’s precisely this kind of problem which is likely to drive people away from the site”, Sophos senior technology consultant Graham Cluley says. “Facebook needs to get a handle on this problem quickly, and prevent it from happening on such a scale again”.

      Actually, the article states that people ARE posting nasty images but that they aren’t invisible to the owner of the profile.

      That Sophos article says the same exact thing. I know it does because I read it as part of the research I did. Please quote the entire context, next time, for accuracy and consistency.

        The article states, “Over the last few days, there’s been a rumor circulating through the interwebs that says Facebook hackers are posting porn to your Facebook profile. According to a number of web security experts, this is a complete hoax.” Is that enough context for you? It’s not a “complete hoax” and web security experts didn’t say it was. Therefore, this statement is FALSE, WRONG, and a giant FAIL.

        • http://www.flesheatingzipper.com FleshEatingZipper

          le sigh.

          I meant the entire context of the sophos article you were “quoting”, but leaving vital information out of, to try to make your point.  You quoted “out of context”.

          The sophos article clearly states, as we did here, that the posts are NOT invisible to the profile owner.  Please go re-read it.

          Because here’s what they REALLY had to say about it : 

          “The message is, of course, nonsense and users should not repost the warning.

          We have not seen any evidence that hackers are able to post content to a compromised Facebook wall that the owner of the account cannot see.

          The fact that the bogus warning tells you that it’s invisible to your eyes just adds to the panic, of course.”

          That’s from the same people you “quoted”.
          Again, out of context.
          Buh bye.

  • George

    This is not a rumor. It’s happening to many people.

  • Idle_cool

    If its not by “Hackers” then what exactly it is???

    • http://www.flesheatingzipper.com FleshEatingZipper

      Who was doing it was never the issue of contention.

  • Cetandi Bolger

    Um… It’s not completely a hoax… i just recieved an instant message from someone I KNOW would not try to mess with me like this “you have nasty photos posted at this address: and the link was inaccessible, but it was a link that was instant messaged to me by who I thought was my friend, but I think his account has been hacked…. the link was something like anamephotos.fbeww I tried to go to it and was directed to Bing (which is not my browser) telling me I needed to change my adult content settings from moderate to adult
