I've looked all over the place but I can't find any information on this as it's using generic terms so there's nothing specific to search for,apologies if this has been posted somewhere already which I suspect it has.
The issue I've seen three or four times now is that someone posts something generic on a friend's wall then appears to immediately comment on it with 'the link, hehe.. (google short link). The first part varies, the one today is 'I dare you to edit this weird movie ?' but the second part is identical aside from the google short link changing. I've used the Google site to see what the short link expands to which seems to be a different site each time, I've not opened the site but the only brief mention I found on a reddit thread claimed the page had a fake FB login to capture username/passwords.
As it's friends of friends who seem to have been caught by this, I've not been able to have a look to see how their account has been compromised - anyone familiar with this and know the source?
