UK-based Sophos, an IT security company, notes on its blog a couple of recent scams making their way around Facebook.
Don’t fall for a current Facebook trend that promises to give you a custom pink or red facebook profile page. It’s a scam!
However, if you see your friends’ profile pictures have acquired a pink tinge, and they’re inviting you to do it, too, that’s not a scam. It’s a legitimate Breast Cancer awareness app.
Always get your security advice from a legitimate IT company – don’t believe everything you see on Facebook or other social media!
