Facecrooks have issued a warning about another attempt to trick users into earning comission for scammers. This one is spread via signature links and messages inviting Farmville players to give a home to a rare Ptarmigan Willow.

The full report with screen shots can be found HERE.

Sophos are reporting the latest one to go into circulation, this time it's a bogus message claiming to be from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg that all Facebook accounts will close today. If you click through and follow this message, you have to allow a rogue 3rd party app' access to your account so the message can be sent again from your wall, and then you are presented with the survey via a pop-up.

Full details along with screen-shots can be found in the Sophos report HERE.

The latest one, again published by Sophos, is a spam campaign that claims to calculate your total number of hours you spent logged into Facebook in 2010.

The process you then go through to find your total hours on the site actually ends with you (or an attempt at making you) complete a commission earning survey for the perpetrator(s).

You can read the full report with screen-shots over at the Sophos Naked Security Blog HERE.

SOPHOS Security have identified yet another SURVEY SCAM, this one being spread with message "OMG Miley Cyrus is caught smoking a BONG on video " with a link attached.


Might want to change that the Miley Cyrus with the bong is an actual video that is on Youtube like the woman who was texting, and fell into the fountain.
