Custom Search Another Facebook Scam Strikes [ALERT]

Yet another Facebook (Facebook reviews) scam? This is starting to get repetitive.

It seems that Facebook users have been receiving new messages from Facebook spammers. Although this one doesn’t seem to steal your username and passsword, it’s still annoying, potentially dangerous, and a bad reflection on Facebook’s security and spam filters.

The attack is sending spam messages to inboxes across Facebook with just one message: The domain, which we advise you NOT to visit seems to be random in where it redirects you. Some people have arrived at Viagra ads, while others have arrived at travel search engines. There’s really no telling what the goal of is, except that it probably doesn’t have wholesome intentions.

The scam seems to be widespread - has been a top Google search trend for at least the last hour. It’s tough to tell exactly who is affected, so please remember to report any spam you receive on Facebook and to never enter your Facebook username and password anywhere except on

There seems to be a recent trend of Facebook scams. Not even a week ago, we had the phishing scam and the next day, the very similar phishing attempt. This is not only getting repetitive, but it’s potentially damaging to users and their Facebook accounts.

Spam is notoriously tough to fight, but Facebook needs to step up its efforts before a more severe scam hurts more of its users and damages Facebook’s reputation. To Facebook’s credit, a recent blog post outlines some steps that the company is taking to address the issue.

In any event, we’ll update here if we learn more about the scam.

Janet Jackson Wardrobe Malfunction

Janet Jackson Wardrobe MalfunctionJustices send Jackson 'wardrobe malfunction' case back for review.

The Supreme Court wants a lower court to re-examine its decision throwing out a $550,000 fine against CBS over Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" incident, the Associated Press reports.

The lower court had ruled in CBS' favor, saying the Federal Communications Commission had strayed from its long-held approach of applying identical standards to words and images when reviewing complaints of indecency. The FCC had fined the network over Jacksons' breast-baring performance at the 2004 Super Bowl.

The order to revisit the case follows the Supreme Court's ruling last week that narrowly upheld FCC's policy of threatening fines against even one-time uses of curse words on live television, the AP writes.

KryptosMission Impossible: The Code Even the CIA Can't Crack.

The most celebrated inscription at the Central Intelligence Agency's headquarters in Langley, Virginia, used to be the biblical phrase chiseled into marble in the main lobby: "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." But in recent years, another text has been the subject of intense scrutiny inside the Company and out: 865 characters of seeming gibberish, punched out of half-inch-thick copper in a courtyard.

It's part of a sculpture called Kryptos, created by DC artist James Sanborn. He got the commission in 1988, when the CIA was constructing a new building behind its original headquarters. The agency wanted an outdoor installation for the area between the two buildings, so a solicitation went out for a piece of public art that the general public would never see. Sanborn named his proposal after the Greek word for hidden. The work is a meditation on the nature of secrecy and the elusiveness of truth, its message written entirely in code.

Almost 20 years after its dedication, the text has yet to be fully deciphered. A bleary-eyed global community of self-styled cryptanalysts—along with some of the agency's own staffers—has seen three of its four sections solved, revealing evocative prose that only makes the puzzle more confusing. Still uncracked are the 97 characters of the fourth part (known as K4 in Kryptos-speak). And the longer the deadlock continues, the crazier people get.

Whether or not our top spooks intended it, the persistent opaqueness of Kryptos subversively embodies the nature of the CIA itself—and serves as a reminder of why secrecy and subterfuge so fascinate us. "The whole thing is about the power of secrecy," Sanborn tells me when I visit his studio, a barnlike structure on Jimmy Island in Chesapeake Bay (population: 2). He is 6'7", bearded, and looks a bit younger than his 63 years. Looming behind him is his latest work in progress, a 28-foot-high re-creation of the world's first particle accelerator, surrounded by some of the original hardware from the Manhattan Project. The atomic gear fits nicely with the thrust of Sanborn's oeuvre, which centers on what he calls invisible forces.

With Kryptos, Sanborn has made his strongest statement about what we don't see and can't know. "He designed a piece that would resonate with this workforce in particular," says Toni Hiley, who curates the employees-only CIA museum. Sanborn's ambitious work includes the 9-foot 11-inch-high main sculpture—an S-shaped wave of copper with cut-out letters, anchored by an 11-foot column of petrified wood—and huge pieces of granite abutting a low fountain. And although most of the installation resides in a space near the CIA cafeteria, where analysts and spies can enjoy it when they eat outside, Kryptos extends beyond the courtyard to the other side of the new building. There, copper plates near the entrance bear snippets of Morse code, and a naturally magnetized lodestone sits by a compass rose etched in granite.
