The Scam"OMG, how could she do that, her fame is gone...
+ [ Link ]"
Application Block Link (Use this to block the facebook application)
You may see a message similar to the one below posted by a friend on Facebook. See example
Making the mistake of clicking the link in the post will transport you to the following page below, which claims to show you some photos of Miley Cyrus. See example
At this point you should STOP. Over the last few days Facebook has been blanketed with post claiming to show photos and videos of Miley Cyrus. All of them have either been survey scams or worst. However if you just must see some more of this stuff, you're prompted to "click here" which will bring you to the following "Application Request for Permission" screen. See example.
As you can see the above request for permission screen asks you to allow an application you know nothing about, full basic access to your profile, the ability to post to your wall and to do all of the aforementioned even when you're not using the application. It requests all of these permissions because it plans to use them to do what you see in the next screen shot. See example.
Without your knowledge and without you seeing what the post promised you would first, the application makes to post on your behalf to your Facebook wall. During this time you're shown and asked to click on the following screen. See example.
If you must press on, clicking on the above screen will load YouTube into an I-frame in the page and begin to play a Miley Cyrus "nude" photo video. See example.
Although this scam does produce a "video" at the end of the process, why anyone would take this process to see a video on YouTube is beyond me. They just gave an application they don't know access to their profile, to spam this really useless message and video to their friends. Don't fall for.
