A new clickjacking scam was spreading on Facebook luring victims with a purported video of "cheerleaders gone wild," a security expert warned on Thursday before Facebook shut the attack down. Victims' accounts were posting messages that said "cheerleaders gone wild - have to see this" with a photo of, you guessed it, a cheerleader carrying pom poms. Clicking the link led to a warning that the content may be inappropriate for some users and prompted users to confirm that they are 18 or older, said Graham Cluley of Sophos, who bravely clicked the link for research purposes only, of course.
