14 Apr Salesforce.com CEO Hit by Spammers
The CEO of Salesforce.com has become the latest person to be hit by a facebook scam that tags users into random photos. The scam is intended to encourage these users into clicking onto the phots before bombarding them with malicious videos and surveys.
The scam works by tagging the user to a photo or picture which acts as a gateway for
the malicious application. It will also post a message to their walls which tags their friends, thus pulling them into the scam as well.
Marc Beinhoff, the salesoforce.com CEO, was recently struck by one such scam. He was tagged into a photo of a scantily clad woman. He claims the scam "seems to happen on a weekly basis."
