The Latest Likejack: 101 Hottest Women in the World

Beware of “liking” the 101 hottest women in the world.

The latest Fb likejack promises pictures of the world’s sexiest women, but it gives you little more than a headache and one picture of Jessica Alba. In case you’re wondering whether the virus is worth it: no, she’s not even naked.

This likejack works just like those that have come before it. It propagates itself by tricking Facebook members into clicking on a virus that instructs Fb to “like” the link. Once the page has been liked, it gets posted on the member’s wall, where all of his or her friends can see it.

I don’t expect many people to find embarrassment in liking the hottest women in the world, but you can look like a moron for getting duped by some stupid hacker’s attempt at manupulation.

The best protection?

I can’t say it enough: don’t click on every little link that you run across. I used to say “even if your Facebook buddy…” Likejacking, however, has become so popular, that I’m tempted to change that refrain to “especially if your Facebook buddy…”

Hackers often use base human urges to spread viruses. The 101 hottest women in the world is right up their alley. Unfortunately, the same kind of crap that hackers use to spread their corrupt files is the same kind of crap that supposedly legit news organization pedal these days. It’s just a matter of time before news broadcasts and clickjacks are virtually indistinguishable from one another.

    So I clicked, but rather than anything be posted to my facebook, instead my url bar and other entry cells on my browser and computer would start to autofill with random letters, which could only be stopped by rebooting. It would then start again after a while. Any thoughts on what this might be/what to do about it?

    • That’s the first I’ve heard of that happening. Sounds like a virus to me. Scan your computer with two virus protection programs to make sure you catch everything.
