London: A porn-based malware on Facebook is believed to have affected over 1,10,000 accounts in the past two days that dupes users into clicking on an adult link that infects their computers with a Trojan to hijack vital parts.

According to Daily Star, the link once clicked, asks users to download the latest Flash Player update to view it.

The link also infects the computers with Trojan after it is clicked wherein it can hijack vital information from the computers.

The malware porn link is posted on infected users' Facebook page and it tags at least 20 friends of the user each time it is posted due to which the threat appears more dangerous than the previous ones.

Facebook authorities said that they were aware of the issue and are blocking these scams to ensure people a completely safe experience on the social networking site.
