    The hoax didnt include any information or proof about how hackers were able to post these pictures.

    I dont think that hackers are posting these images. It is instead, a malicious app that is using a compromised account to send these images to all that person's friends. That person's friends may then give the same app access to their accounts, the app then sent the same images to all those persons friends.This goes on until millions of person receive these images.

    Is there any proof that hackers are posting these images? The only way these images are posted on your Facebook wall or timeline is when you allow malicious Facebook applications access to your account. Facebook users should stop giving applications access to their accounts, that promise them things that are too good to be true.
