is it possible to get infected on facebook by just scrolling the newsfeed?

Recommended Posts

so, today while i was scrolling my facebook like everyday, i saw some user  posting a spam link, a clearly malicious link in a group i was in (it also had a porn image attached)

i was wondering if you can get infected just by scrolling and seeing it. i reported it to facebook and covered it.

Hi @ParanoiaBoy,

Nope!  You have to click it for any chance of getting infected.  Plus, it was most likely trying to gather personal information, and wouldn't have installed any malicious app if clicked.
