Facebook hacked by porn site?

A Canadian company specializing in Internet porn is being sued by Facebook amid allegations it hacked the popular social networking website’s computers and tried to access the personal information of users, court documents show.A numbered Ontario company, which does business online under the name SlickCash, along with several people in the Toronto area, are named in an amended complaint filed by Facebook in San Jose, Calif.

The hugely popular information sharing website alleges that, for two weeks last June, the defendants attempted to access Facebook’s servers at least 200,000 times.

“Each of these requests sought to direct Facebook’s computers to send information on other Facebook users back to (the company’s Internet Protocol) address,” the court documents say. (link)

    Somehow this smacks of a misunderstanding at some level. It is fairly common for people to create a Facebook app now a days to try and market your product to an interested audience. Now especially in porn, its not smart to market to people who have not expressed an interested in your product, so why would it make any sense to try and harvest random Facebook users info to send them Porn marketing. This is a legitimate company which just happens to have a porn site, so they dont have a vested interest in coming under scrutiny for spamming. We are missing some facts here…
