Hi,

I have a bad experienced on FACEBOOK. One day accidentally i forgot to log out my account and after in just an hour all of my friends received this message “Hello” when my friends made a response it message like this “Wanna laugh?”

Then next message is “ I saw your video in the internet” if your replied then it automatically send you a link.

If you click it, it display binary code numbers and displays an error and freezes so you don’t have a choice but to restart your PC once restarted it will now process very slow and hang.

What’s the problem here is it the Facebook?
