The Department of Justice-Office of Cybercrime (DOJ-OOC) on Wednesday warned Facebook users tagged in a post containing a link to an “adult video” not to click it as this could activate malware.
“When clicked, it will result in the automatic and random tagging in the same post of other Facebook account users,” the DOJ-OOC said in a statement.
“If you happen to get a notification tagging you in a post that contains a link to an apparent adult content, do not click any further and report the post.”
The DOJ-OOC said Facebook has confirmed that the page linked to the malicious tagging has already been removed. Its administrators have also been sanctioned, the department added.
Offenses against the confidentiality, integrity and availability of computer data and systems through the introduction or transmission of viruses are punishable under Republic Act 10175 or the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012.
“Let’s all be good netizens and practice the responsible use of social media,” the DOJ-OOC said. — Virgil Lopez/RSJ, GMA News
