Security researchers from Sophos have spotted yet another scam currently spreading on Facebook. The World Funniest Condom Commercial - LOL scam attempts to trick users into clicking on the link which will eventually lead them to a bogus YouTube video screen.

Spamvertised as:

The World Funniest Condom Commercial - LOL haha its really so funny ~ Dont Miss it !

Upon clicking anywhere on the screen, users will then unknowingly "Like" the bogus video and further distribute it across Facebook. Users are advised to be extra vigilant when interacting with Facebook links, even those distributed by trusted friends, and take advantage of the anti-clickjacking features offered by the NoScript Firefox add-on.
