Do facebook-hijacking viruses always come from facebook itself?

Q: Do facebook-hijacking viruses always come from facebook itself?

Every account I've read of someone's facebook being hacked has been from someone foolishly clicking a link a fellow victim uncharacteristically 'sent' to them, on facebook.

Is this always the case, or can facebook-hijacking viruses be obtained from elsewhere?

If I regularly use streaming websites or porn or whatever, am I at risk of a virus using a keylogger to hijack my facebook?

thanks

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm surprised that I am not finding a thread on this issue already.
Evidently something that changed in a recent build has caused both Facebook apps to crash.
When you launch the app it closes just after the window pops up.
It's kind of a bummer because when you get a notification and it opens the app, it just crashes.
The only way to use Facebook at the moment is with the browser.
I hope they get this fixed. Maybe the app needs to be updated now but to have an app quit working with an OS build update is not good.
On the Windows Store the ratings/feedback is flooded with users all experiencing this issue.

As the title says Facebook, and only Facebook, runs very slow or sometimes fail to load. I've tried this on both Chrome and Mozilla and the result are the same.
Tried to scan with NOD32 antivirus + Eset Online Scanner. Right now is at 55% and found 1 threat (Win32/AdkDLLWrapper) unwanted application.

I have a toshiba windows 7 laptop. I signed in to facebook and avg pop up came up saying it's using 212mb and I'm not even playing a game or downloading anything or looking at pictures. It's been happening for awhile now and it happens after being on facebook for only 5-10 minutes. My avg and Malwarebytes are up to date and didn't find anything. I got a limited bandwidth usage and I don't want to waste too much by doing so little. Help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Edit: I use firefox.

A:Does facebook use a lot of mb?

anything you do online is downloaded into your computer. If you are viewing a facebook page and there are pictures - it counts against you. pictures can be pretty large.

i have a new computer, and since having this, Facebook will not load. Some pictures will come up, but most have red crosses in a box, and then it will not actually complete loading. When i click on one of the things in Facebook it says Internet explorer cannot display. When i go back to the iinternet home page it will not allow me to and i have to get out of the internet altogether and continue to refresh the page until homepage comes up. When clicking Facebook it comes up saying that it is encrypted. I have tried both internet company and where i got the computer and no one seems to be able to help.

hope this makes sense!

A:help with facebook

Hello Deb J.

First off, which browser are you using?
If it is IE7 or 8, I would recommend you try viewing the site on either FireFox, or Chrome to see if the error continues. If it does, then it will be much harder to fix, but I suspect that they will show it fine. That would mean IE is the problem.

I do not understand. Since upgrading to Windows 10 my using the latest version of Google Chrome, Facebook hangs up after about 15 minutes of use and videos are very erratic. This same thing happens if I use Mozilla Fire Fox but if I use Microsoft Edge all seems to be fine. I can use Facebook for over an hour with no issues.

What is the deal? Is Microsoft screwing with browser operations except for theirs? I have looked around here and see nothing that will solve my problem. I do NOT Like Edge and would rather keep using Google Chrome. What am I to do??

I have a facebook account and only had like about 3 months.
 
but they have blocked my account.
 
And When I logged in I could not get into my account
Only way they will let me back in to my account is if I send them my personal info.
They asked me to send them a photo ID
and A gov ID and
anything that had my birthdate
and photo attached.
 
My account already had my correct birthday listed on my facebook page.
and yet they ask me to send them a copy of my photo
along with my correct birthdate.
 
I think it is a scam.

From what I know about using Facebook, the privacy settings apply to individual posts. You will need to change the settings for each post if you want them to not be seen.If you did not change the privacy settings of your old posts from Public to another, then other people will be able to see your posts just fine.

Yes they can hack. Actually at right there is an option Forgot password? They can do with this. To prevent from this 1.Give a strong password 2.Never tell your email id to other that make them easy to hack 3.Never tell confirmation code that you get from facebook company This will prevent from hacking your prevent.

A:Facebook

Is this a desktop or laptop computer? If it's a laptop sometimes there is a hidden recovery partion that allows you to restore the computer to it's original state without using any CD's. Another thing to try is to connect directly to your modem and bypass any router that is in use on your network to see if the router is blocking the site. You'll also want to disable any firewall and/or antivirus software that is installed on your PC to see if it is the culprit.

Well, MySpace has become more of a music site and the social networking aspect has been trumped by Facebook & Twitter. The problem is there is a lot of third party apps on Facebook that come with malware and it seems to be very difficult to figure out what is legit and what isn't.

Someone said that you click on it, then right click and hold down, move the mouse pointer down till it leaves. It don't work as I have tried it several times. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I have a school take home laptop but even at home facebook is blocked. is there any way i can unblock it??
 

A:How do i get on facebook?

howdy, and welcome to TSG.

Nope, there is not a way to do that. You will need to talk to your school's IT department to unblock that. We cannot assist with bypassing those type of restrictions, so I'm going to close this.

I tried to use an APP on facebook and it requested me to download a file. So I did.. And then it asks me to choose a program to open the file with.. I did.. And nothing happens.. Now when I go to facebook.com it asks me to download the same file, every time. I can't even get to the login page on facebook. The farthest I get is being asked to download this file... I'm at my dad's house taking care of his animals while he's in the hospital and he's coming home this afternoon.. He uses facebook all the time so I need to get this fixed before he gets home..

What is an APP on facebook? Is this a legit application from facebook or a resume download? On what browser? Maybe you should clear your browser cache.

an event told me to open a page and it was out of facebook (doesn't start with facebook.com\***)
mr dumb guy(me ) opened it and now the facebook sends invitations to the event for every friend of mine + when i chat with someone it sends some words(ads for that other site) to my friend
tried malwarebytes thinking it was a virus but nothing was found
i also realized it only works on my account - my sis account (opened on the same pc) didn't send these ads and invitations

Try going into your account (top right of page) and click on privacy settings. Then try changing your settings on "apps and websites" and "block lists." Hopefully that'll work for ya.

So recently I went back to IE9 for certain reasons and for several days I was able to view Facebook just fine and it looked just fine this morning and now it looks like this in the screenshot in no add-ons mode is there a possible fix for it, I hate it when it does this

A:Why does Facebook look like this in IE9

Hi,
I have no idea what FaceBook is supposed to look like ?
But I would rather see someone use another browser than use ie9 on windows 7

Have you tried to press the F12 key and go to Browser mode and switch to something else/ comp-view.. or see what it's using as default ?
You can also try another Document mode and test ?

When I open and application on Facebook, "redirecting" keeps flashing on the tab and it never opens. This has been going on for 2 days. Anyone know what I can do?
Thanks!

Ok so I can't get into those 2 websites and I use Windows Vista and the first time I flushed the DNS on the command thing but now this is what FireFox had to say:

Server not found



Firefox can't find the server at www.youtube.com.

Check the address for typing errors such as
ww.example.com instead of
www.example.com
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Please help guys!~ I already flushed the DNS.

Download to Desktop: DDS by sUBs from one of the below locations

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/dds.com

double click DDS to run it
Make sure there is a check mark in DDS txt
place a check mark in the attach.txt box and then press start

Do not select any other options unless specifically told to

When complete, DDS.txt will openand attach.txt will be minimized on your taskbar, click on it to open it

Save both reports to your desktop.
