Facebook hacked important info here!

if you are a facebook user read these intructions and follow them:


VERY IMPORTANT!!!!! Apparently, there is a hacker on FB!! To see if he is on your friends list (because, apparently he's hidden and won't show up on your regular list, otherwise) PLEASE go to PRIVACY SETTINGS, then click BLOCK LIST and type in AUTOMATION-LOG. If a name pops up, PLEASE BLOCK HIM and PLEASE PASS ON!!!.

It's a scareware...

A warning being sent between Facebook users is causing an almighty scare, as it raises alarm that strangers might be able to access your profile.

The warning claims that entering your Privacy Settings on Facebook, and hunting for "Automation Labs" under Block Users, will display approximately 20 people you don't know.

A typical version of the warning reads as follows:

Quote:
All FB friends. This is important. Do this asap! Go to settings. Click on privacy settings. Click on block users. in the name box enter 'automation labs'. A list of approx 20 people you dont even know will come up. Block each one individually. These people have access to your facebook account/profile and spy on what You do!
And it's true, you will see about 20 names - however, it doesn't mean that they have any kind of special access to your Facebook profile and your security has not been breached as I explain in the following video:

Yeah, I had to have a talk with a couple of my Facebook friends who posted this in their statuses

I was so proud of my wife, as a coworker started talking about this at work and my wife was like...wait a minute...you are searching for something and seeing a name pop-up. This doesn't sound real to me, you should search on google and see if this is a hoax. Was my happiest day.

lol I almost fell for this, but then again I really don't use facebook and I have my profile set to friends only and I thought it was trying to block people that were on my list and not searching FB for random people

Meh good thing I was to lazy to start blocking random people...who will never look at my profile lol
