"They're sure it's a spam attack? And not just users uploading their Halloween photos?"
You might start longing for the days of excessively personal status updates and Farmville activity clogging up Facebook news feeds. Recent reports of porn, violent images and other graphic content on the social networking site (including by some of our own CNN.com staffers) have gotten readers talking.
"This happened to me 3 weeks ago," wrote user mongoo. "Real embarrassing. I deleted my Facebook account and haven't looked back since. I actually feel free again."
Readers described the images they encountered. "I saw the dead dog, very sad and disgusting," noted lamp29.
digammo wrote, "Anyone joking about these images are as sick as the hackers. And if you have seen any of them, you will understand." This commenter added, "There is no link. The images show up on your feed as 'likes' from your friends."
Some commenters said users' responses to the imagery made the problem worse in some cases. StJamesIII offered some advice.
"It's not hacking. What happens is anyone on your friends list that comments on one of those pictures with their complaints and tirades ends up having that picture show up on all of their friends' timelines. That's how it's spreading. Don't complain about the picture. Just delete it, and if you have friends commenting on them tell them to cut it out because they're only exposing it to everybody on their friends list."
Blam0h1 said, "Saw some of this going on yesterday. The enraged comments only made the 'fire' larger. It was like a train accident in that you couldn't look away at the horror but the morbid side thought how clever it was to initiate such an attack."
Others thought people were overreacting to the spam, and there were a few jokes. "Were there any casualties as a result of this egregious attack? I'm prepared to donate blood if need be," wrote P0DPE0PLE.
And then there were those who feltÂ a little left out. EngrScott wrote, "Just checked my Facebook.Â Didn't get any pron.Â Don't know if I should be happy or disappointed."
