Found a couple of my innocent friends posting these materials again and again.
How do you safeguard youself?
- Dont click on any link that you do not know or is suspicious.
- If any application asks you to approve/join/like do not do it unless you know the website/link
- They will have very attractive images/text - Eg. Osama bin Laden's uncensored pictures. If its too good to be true, it may not be safe link.
What do they get by spreading these kinds of links?
Any of the following
- Viral marketing - Website may be trying to make some product/website popular
- Stealing your details - They may be collecting your name, geographic location phone etc to sell it further.
- Stealing your id and passwords .
