Miley Cyrus sex tape scam details

Unbelievable? Another social engineering attempt. Here is a source on the non-existent Miley Cyrus sex tape:

Facebook scammers are using the promise of a non-existent Miley Cyrus sex tape to lure users into giving up temporary access to their accounts. Once inside, scammers run a script to create automatic posts that tag friends and propagate the scam.

Here, again, we are dealing with the well-known, if not utterly obsolete, “copy/paste code” method whereby the scammer aims to steal the victim’s Facebook authentication token. This grants the scammer temporary access to the targeted Facebook account, including the victim’s list of friends.[HOTforSecurity]
