Facebook today said it has fixed the bug that allowed a spamming worm to automatically post messages to users' walls earlier this week.

Clicking on the link to the bogus application automatically added the app to users' profiles, then automatically reposted a status message with a new link to friends' walls, said Sophos' Graham Cluley today.


If malware makers had had this bug or last week's photo upload flaw, they might have been able to use them to attack Facebook's more than 500 million users with malformed images or auto-generated links to sites hosting a wide range of browser, operating system or application exploits, said Sullivan.
