    Default Facebook spam abuses Microsoft Translator

    We recently investigated the facebook spam that abuses McAfee URL Shortener and Google Translator and published our report.

    Today, we have come across a new facbeook spam campaign that abuses Microsoft Translator for redirecting victims to the spammer's site. I have come across different variants of this spam campaign within last 24 hours.

    The list of variants used in this campaign includes the old profile viewer trick " Profile Viewer version 4.6 : Check who views your profile at link in Description".



    Facebook profile viewer spam



    Facebook SPAMs

    Unfortunately, i can't share the screenshots of other variants as it contains adult images. So , here i am sharing only the description in the SPAM picture:

    Look what she did after drinking , Video link in description
    Looks like she enjoyed it, Video link in description
    They gone too far
    Massive japanise org* sports, Follow the link to watch video
    Beautiful girl on facebook, click on the link to know about her
    Got caught making hot video on cam, Video link in description
    You can't believe she did it in bus, Follow the link to watch video
    Got caught in library, Video link in description
    "She was seduced by her own uncle, find video link in description
    All of the spam posts contain a "j.mp" link (url shortener) that redirects the victim to the Microsoft Translator page. The Microsoft Translator is abused to hide the original spammer website and is used for redirecting to spammers website.

    What's worse about these spam campaign is even security researchers fall victim to the spam. Today, one of my friend fell prey to a post that promising "Free Gift Card to spend at Starbucks!". So, it is useless to blame a normal users. I believe they will realize their mistake once they find them-self victim to the attack.

    Please share this article with your friends and spread the awareness about facebook spams.

    Stay tuned..! I'm starting my investigation on this new campaign ;) This article will be updated if i find anything interesting.

    This shit was happening last month, and it's starting to happen again, which is why I shared this. Be aware, as 88% of the links people send you on facebook is adware, malicious, or spam, and can possibly hijack your account information.
