I will talk about what phishing, fake accounts, self xss, malware toolbars, .exe malware, and shared secret stealing are and give some examples and only a limited number of Facebook’s countermeasures against such attacks. These are the types of attacks where the hacker doesn’t gain control of your website, but only control of a user’s account. Unfortunately, Facebook has to keep some of our protections secret as they’d lose effectiveness if they were known. I will talk about the threats in details, the solutions will be more light weight.
