This week, according to CNet, certain Facebook business pages appeared to have been posting malicious links.  The pages affected are ones managed by Sendible, a company that makes software for businesses to manage accounts and presences on various social-media services.

In its Twitter feed, Sendible has been quick to deny that it was hacked.  Instead, the company wrote, “One of our users has discovered a major flaw in Facebook’s security.”

Apparently, when the user attempted to post as a fan to certain Facebook business pages, the user, instead, wound up as the owner of the page.

The malicious links, which read “Change Your Facebook Background Here!”, were showing up on brand pages as major as Coca-Cola, Google, and “South Park.”
