Hacked Facebook applications reach out to exploit sites in Russia

Hacked Facebook applications reach out to exploit sites in Russia: “All the social networking sites have issues with calling out to exploit pages. Usually what happens is that someone’s website gets hacked, and because they link to it from their MySpace or Facebook page, their contacts and friends sometimes get drawn to the attack sites. This is quite common, and we’ll write about it soon, but today’s story is a little different, in that these seem to be actual Facebook applications that have been hacked. (Please note that the application developer(s) are innocent victims too, and did not intend for their games to be hacked.)
