Facebook’s popularity attracts spammers of all sorts and the latest scam is the dislike button.

Sophos, an online security firm posted a warning on Monday about the scam that asks users to enable the ‘new feature’.

By clicking the link, the user will be redirected to a page which asks the user to copy and paste Javascript code into the address bar, activating the malicious code.

The dislike button has been used many times by scammers but this latest incident is seemingly more complicated. Facebook’s new security tools probably limited the scam’s effects on the users.
