A BLOGGER UNDER ATTACK !


Unusual activity in my Facebook Account, may be spam :(  Immediately this quote of Napolean Bonaparte came to mind  : Never awake me when you have good news to announce, because with good news nothing presses; but when you have bad news, arouse me immediately, for then there is not an instant to be lost - Napoleon I


You can delay in communicating good news, but not with bad one. Some times your reputation would be at stake.

Last evening, as usual when I was sharing some content in my Facebook Timeline & Page, I got a chat  message from a guy whose name I could not exactly remember with unusual question 'is this your video ?'   Since I have YouTube channel where I uploaded around 6 or 7 videos of mine,  I tried to open the link that guy sent me.  Soon it had taken to a page of some obscene material.  Immediately, I unfriend that guy, but it  immediately created the same link automatically from my side and sent to  half a dozen people in my friends list.   I got responses the same way like I experienced.   It almost spun my head.  Immediately, I permanently turned off my ' chats' buttons and decided not to respond to any chats any more.  Friends were asked  to use alternative means to interact with me through my twitter handle.

This may be a phishing attack, but luckily I have not put any valuable personal data in my FB profile.  On internet, nothing is foolproof.  Even the Google or Facebook servers are under constant  attacks by some software geeks when devil works on their minds.

Through this post, I want to caution all friends especially on FB . I advice you to be cautious   when you are online. Unless situation warrants, it is better to turn off the chat in FB and turn it on only when required . It is a safe measure, especially for girls and women who are on high risk zone. Due to all these reasons, I have not allowed my school-going daughters to have their own FB Accounts.

So, the home point is,  prevention is better than cure !
