Social networking website goes NFSW.

According to a report from Gawker, social networking site Facebook has been hacked to flood user feeds with porn and gory images.

Various users are reporting the problem, with one user, Adam Shank saying that “the pictures are REALLY graphic”. Actress Courtney Zito also posted saying she saw an image of “a guy who had his skull bashed in and his brains on the street” in her Facebook feed.

It is speculated that the hacker group Anonymous maybe behind the attack, although the group had dismissed reports of targeting Facebook earlier in this month.

We have yet to encounter the hack, but just to be on the safe side, it would wise to lay off that Facebook bookmark, at least during work.
