Warning Facebook Users: Hack Attack In Progress, Theft of Passwords and Friends Lists

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By Josey Wales

Good evening my facebook friends. Tonight I have received two personal messages from my every day friends. Friends I have interacted with before. The message was different both times.

First message said, Did you see this pic of Mary?

Second message said, Do you know this person, she is loading some of your photo’s.

In both cases I was informed that my friends had already been hacked by clicking on the links, those links also have a active hyper link to take you to the person’s home page or profile.

DO NOT CLICK ON THOSE LINKS!!  Your personal info and friends list may be stolen. 

They are targeting Conservatives, Christians, Patriots, Constitutionalist, Libertarians, Anti Obama, Gun Owners, 2nd amendment rights, Anti Common Core, New World Order, Agenda 21, TEA Party,  III%ER’S …..

Please send a warning to all your facebook friends.

Do Not Open Any personal Messages sent by your usual friends with active links in the message without contacting them first.

If you feel you have already been a victim, change your password ASAP.

If you or someone you know has had a similar experience, please share it in the comment section below. Together we can help one another.  

United We Stand!

Update: It is still happening this morning. The new message I received said: “If this is you, keep up the good work. This vid ROCKS.”

It looks like a campaign to wipe out as many accounts as possible.

I am sharing a link from Hoax Slayer that shows you many other FB scams that are frequent occurrences, beware of all these Facebook scams.

Internet scammers are increasingly using Facebook as a means of connecting with potential victims. Facebook has also become a very effective vehicle for the distribution of hoaxes, misinformation, scurrilous rumours and outright nonsense of all kinds. Conversely, Facebook can be a rapid way of distributing factual and worthwhile information such as computer security warnings. This page helps Facebook users sort out which is which by publishing links to Facebook related Hoax-Slayer articles. Much More Here

Here is a video that explains some of what I experienced in the last 24 hours. Beware and please share this information with your FB friends.

They are pulling out all the stops, Now OBOTS are leaving me messages like this in the comment section of this post on FB.

Lori Bruffy This has been going around and is actually a VIRUS!!!! DO NOT CLICK LINK!   I would remove this post so no one gets infected.
Benjamin Wirtz So a virus warning of hackers? Now that’s clever.
These comments come from schills trying to discredit me and this Facebook warning, they do not like resistance. Please call these people out when you see them trying to mislead our FB friends. This is beyond normal behaviour. These people have no soul.

      Facebook is useless anymore, just like what Classmates had become. Go ahead and hack away! There’s a reason I don’t keep up with folks I can’t call or meet directly!

      • GuitarLots

        Facebook is useless and YouTube use to be great about 7 years ago … Now all these social media sites just plain stink. Remember to pick up the phone and call someone once in a while or write a letter every now and then, but for heavens sake stop with the emails and stupid posts like this one :lol:

      Where did they get the list of who to attack? The NSA?

    • Confederate

      Happy to disappoint you but these hacker attacks against Facebook & the attempt to find user passwords, etc. is nothing new, & happens several thousand times a day, EVERY day had has been going on since day one of Facebook’s existence! :roll: :roll: :roll:

      • COCONUT

        I know a lot of people who are on facebook and THEY’RE DEFINITELY NOT MORONS!

    • Back off

      Facebook is dead.

    • Pam Vredenburg

      Very Nice Job! Thanks for the heads up.

      • Josey Wales

        Thank you Pam, I had another attack right away this morning. From the looks of the comments on some of my recent posts, the liberal/progressive left, are out in full force trying to discredit social media. TY for your comment Pam.

        • Intelharvest

          The Left doesn’t work for a living so this is what they do while on the dole, and pretend it’s a job. Sitting on their ass and spouting Communism is all they’re good for, we see ‘em all the time here.

      This problem is growing fast and it is happening on all levels, from homes to businesses. Unfortunately, this problem is getting worse as deliberate errors into software or hardware designs, many of which are developed in collaboration with the NSA; or by recommending the use of security protocols that the NSA knows to be insecure, in its dual role as cryptographic standards-setter and codebreaker. Because of this, the safeguards have been broken down to gain access to your information making it easier than ever for hackers and cyber criminals.

      I would not post this if I did not feel it was important for the possibilities of terror attacks both here in moscow st.petersbugh and in SOCHI!!



      keep in mind the synchronicity factors of the 9-11 icidents…sept-11
      and see that in the date 2014,february-14(valentines day) you have the same type of forwarning. 011 was the emergency call number…still is
      2-14 2014 is the same type of warning minus the 0

      february 11th and 14th will be the most likely days for terror events in those places described.
