Submission + - Facebook users clickjacked by Paramore naked pics (sophos.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Hayley Williams, the 21-year-old lead singer of the American rock band Paramore, is once again making waves because of her revealing photographs — but this time because malicious hackers are using the lure of her naked body in a clickjacking attack which has spread widely across Facebook today.

Messages saying "<name> likes Paramore n-a-k-ed photo leaked!" have been appearing on thousands of users' Facebook profiles, in the latest exploitation of the site's controversial "Like" facility.

According to security blogger Graham Cluley, who provides instructions on how to identify and clean-up the infection, "Facebook needs to tighten up the way it handles the 'liking' of external webpages before it is even more widely abused by malicious hackers and spammers."

Meanwhile, the cybercriminals are adopting another tactic for those victims who do not fit into the demographic of users likely to be interested in Hayley Williams' naked torso, by offering the phone number and address of teen heart throb Justin Bieber.
