Facebook Files Clickjacking Lawsuit [theregister.co.uk]
Facebook and US state of Washington have filed lawsuits against marketing firm Adscend Media over alleged clickjacking and spam practices, as the social networking giant finally gets tough with scammers operating on the site.
The lawsuits were filed against the co-owners of Delaware-based Adscend in the US District Court in Seattle (PDF) and a federal court in the Northern District of California. They allege violation of the CAN-SPAM Act which prohibits the sending of misleading electronic communications. Adscend was fingered for clickjacking and other scams which netted its owners up to $1.2m a month at their height.
