"free laptop" facebook scam
Ah, the things that people believe on the internet. I'd like to believe its not work that is making me paranoid, but it mostly is. Plus I get paid to help try to find the flaws in things before the time is spent developing them.
The interesting about this thing, is when I first saw the title of the facebook group, I was sure that was odd, but I quickly ignored it and moved on. Then I saw it again tonight, and I started to do a bit of digging.
Anyways, to make a long story short, I started to dig through the js on the page, found out its essentially a small page with a ad or something to c p a l e a d (dot com, I don't want to link to it). That in itself isn't that interesting, its the fact that it tries to detect firebug so you can disable whatever it does (video maybe? I run with noscript so I don't see it).
I'm a tinker, maker, and software developer.
At home I code, game, hang out, all the cool non robot things to do.
Heavily involved with Jenkins open source, and will often submit PRs to random other projects.
I also play games, both board and video games and love to read.
You can usually find me on various services as halkeye.
