For information on how to stop the malicious Facebook message from being sent from your account, please see the instructions below.
How this scam works?
Once a user’s Facebook account is compromised, the cybercriminals will use some automated programming code or a malicious Facebook application, to send the malicious message to all that person’s Facebook friends.
The Facebook friends who receive the message will think it came from a Facebook friend, because the message was sent from that person’s compromised account.
Now, because the message was sent by someone that the receivers know, they will quickly follow the instructions in it. The scammers made the message even more convincing, by putting the names of the recipients in it.
