The Better Business Bureau has issued a warning about a new Facebook 'clickjacking' attack, which has wrecked havoc on the platform in the last 24 hours.

The new 'clickjacking' spam attack involves unsuspecting users clicking a link accompanied by a scandalous looking status update which reads : “OMG This Guy Went A Little Too Far with His Revenge on His Ex Girlfriend”.

When users click on the link, they are prompted to fill a genuinely looking validation test, in order to confirm that the request is not computer generated.

However, what users are actually doing is clicking on the Facebook 'Share' and 'Link', which instantly shares the rogue link on the wall of infected users.

Even though the attack does not spread spyware or malware, it nonetheless adds to the growing number of spam attacks users have to deal with on the platform.

The BBB has advised users not to click on suspicious looking links on the platform, even if they have been shared by someone they know.
