Security firm AVG has warned that Facebook social network is being used by scammers to target users with spywares. Fake profile pages are being made with similar data but links to harmful content.

AVG Blog post said “The Data Snatchers have found a way to automate the creation of Facebook accounts, which means they’ve found a way to bypass the Facebook Captcha (the image of letters which are required for a new account, which are supposed to ensure that a human is involved).”
