    According to the statement published on March 31, 2008 by SCmagazine, an Internet security vendor Fortinet warned that in the last week of March, a spam campaign obtained access to the user accounts of Facebook and send messages on the Wall feature of user profiles, continuing the security threats.

    Fortinet researchers said that Facebook is looking into this problem. Mostly the spam messages are linked to typical spam sites like online pharmacy shops. This site provides content for many pill pushing sites and they are also sourced to a Web host. The Wall feature of Facebook is used by its users to send comments on profile of their friends.
