Oh crap...

Facebook is investigating reports of a massive wave of pornographic and violent images being posted to its website.

The content, which is in the form of links, videos, and images, began to appear Monday(11/14) and includes doctored photographs of celebrities such as Justin Bieber in compromising situations, acts of violence and self-mutilation and even bestiality.

The flood of explicit material appears to be linked to some sort of spam virus that propagates when unknowing users click on infected content, according to tech site ZDNet.

Graham Cluely, a senior technology consultant from Internet security firm Sophos, said it was not yet clear how the malicious content was being spread, but added that the website could face long term consequences.

“It’s precisely this kind of problem which is likely to drive people away from the site,” he wrote in a company blog. “Facebook needs to get a handle on this problem quickly, and prevent it from happening on such a scale again.” [Fox News]

You’d expect a company with the technological resources and financial power of Facebook to monitor their content a tad bit better, right? Apparently not…

A video posted on YouTube by Anonymous, explains that the “Fawkes Virus” attaches itself to a Facebook page and starts to send out malicious links, gaining full access of users accounts. According the video the virus at its full strength can hack into entire computer systems seizing control of hard drives and other computer data.

We guess their attack came a little later than expected…
