Multiple users are falling victims into a fast-spreading Facebook scam, using the "Osama EXECUTION video" theme.

Upon clicking on the tiny.cc shortened URL -- described as Special Forces hit squad put a bullet in the head of Bin Laden! -- users are asked to copy and paste a tiny javascript code into their browsers in order to reveal the video. By doing so, they will automatically post a link of the spreading instructions on the walls of their friends.

There's no actual video to look at, which could naturally change at any given moment of time, to include something more malicious rather than the spreading mechanism itself.

There are currently over 4.266 users at the scam site. Users are advised to avoid interacting with the propagating mechanism and report the site as a fraudulent one.
