    Clickjacking protection in Noscript should prevent this.

    In general, I think it makes sense to implement 3 additional precautionary measures:

    1. Under privacy settings --> app settings --> turn platform apps off.
    2. Add the following rule to your AdBlock Plus filters:
    Code:
    |http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?*
    3. Add the following rule in Noscript -> Options -> Advanced -> ABE -> USER:
    Code:
    # This one blocks all embedded requests to Facebook
    # from third-party sites
    Site .facebook.com .fbcdn.net .facebook.net
    Accept from .facebook.com .fbcdn.net .facebook.net
    Deny INCLUSION

    yeah recently my no-script prevented click-jacking attack from facebook's link.
    Of course the link looked dubious and i opened in sandboxie :)

    LOL this happened to my coworker. She received comment in her wall from a friend recommending her to watch a video of a fat guy dancing. As soon as she clicked the video She recommended that same video to all her contacts. It was funny because religious people received the video in the end because of her :D

    I fail to see how a fat man dancing would upset the religious, but alrighty. Anyway, what isn't spreading on Facebook? Malware authors and LE found the Lost City of Gold when that place was created.

    :D Doesn't take too much these days.

    Used Facebook on and off for years now. Malware and horrid status updates. A potent combination.
