How does Facebook spam work?

Asked by rexpresso (920points) September 6th, 2010

Do you have any idea how they are implemented?

Not that I have any interest on doing it, just wondering if it’s those things called XSS vulnerability or whatever…

Thanks :)

Do you know how or what we can do to protect ourselves from this clickjacking?
