Yesterday, I was wondering what the chances were of our nasty habit of the day – hacking – reaching epidemic proportions on social networks. Got my answer today: very high!
Facebook Account Hacker 3.6., the tool analyzed in my previous article, though relevant for the emerging DIY spying trend, did not seem to be a potential trail blazer in the social scam universe. As already pointed out, the greatest danger it posed was that of damaging the victim’s reputation by revealing his/her intention to spy on friends through countless automatically posted denouncements.
But worry not, our own genuine Doomsday is here to squeeze the life out of the Super Online Socialite’s computer (you got it: not just mess with the victim’s Facebook account, but infect his/her computer).
Fresh from the oven (it was apparently released yesterday), this hack promises to help you break into Facebook accounts and much more!
In fact, once the download link is accessed, the cryptic “much more” part becomes crystal clear:
Yes, Sir! This is a Trojan Dropper, which, as its name indicates, has a bag full of malicious goodies: Trojans, worms, backdoors…You really don’t want to know what’s hiding in there!
Now, if you’re looking for a hack that’s got a clearer niche, here’s one that promises to chase away amorous doubts:
Bad news as well, so keep away, ladies…and gents!
How about spicing things up a little bit more. One hot piece of voyeur crack coming through!
Want to “watch private photos” without adding their owners as friends on Facebook? Easy: after kindly providing the code creators with the username and location of your prospective target, you would just need to copy and paste a piece of code into your browser.
And as you diligently go about your photo cracking business, here’s a very important message from your antivirus: you were about to download a Trojan onto your PC.
Bottom line: installing and updating a complete internet security solutionmay keep you safe…even from yourself.
Click wisely and safely!
