New Facebook clickjack attack

A new clickjack attack is duping Facebook users into spreading spam. On his Sophos blog, senior technology consultant Graham Cluley reports on the scam which entices FB users to click on a link purportedly showing a "shocking video" of a girl being attacked by a shark.
