Facebook has been spammed with images portraying pornography, violence, self mutilation, and bestiality over the last few days. A spokesperson from the networking site have said they are aware of the problem and investigating the issue. They also stated that the Facebook users protection and privacy is their top priority during this time.
Members of Facebook are outraged by the images showing up on their news feed without their consent. Facebook currently has 800 million active members, and it is still unclear how many of these active members have been affected.
Already, the ‘hacktivist’ group Anonymous has been blamed for this attack as they were rumored to have plans for taking down the site on November 5. Since the group has not confirmed it was their doing, there is no proof that Anonymous is to blame for this problem.
