Facebook India conforms that no accounts were hacked

Facebook India has conformed that none of the accounts were hacked during the spam attack on the users recently. This really didn't came in as a surprise it was just the rumors created created by people around and was just popularized and was made a hot topic in Facebook. In fact there were no hackers or hacks involved in the spam attack, it was just pure spam attack no hack attack :).
The report was that around two lakh Facebook accounts were hacked in India but this was just not true according to the reports from Facebook and also said that the spams were not the problem of the website but was infact the misuse of the users. Facebook also said it will take strict actions against the spammers misusing the platform.
 Facebook's spokesmen said:
“We've built enforcement mechanisms to quickly shut down the malicious pages and accounts that attempt to exploit it, we also been put those impacted through educational checkpoints so they know how to protect themselves. We've put in place backend measures to reduce the rate of these attacks and will continue to iterate on our defences to find new ways to protect people.”
