Back in November 2011, Facebook saw spammers take over the Facebook Help Center Community Forum. Now it’s happening all over again. While the forum is meant for asking questions regarding various help topics, spammers are instead using it to spread their crap.

There are now 23 sections (Facebook Page Insights has since been added) and a quick check shows that this attack isn’t as bad as the last one.
