You and your friends may have tried to do the viral spicy noodle challenge. You may have been dared by someone to record yourself while eating the spicy Korean noodles and have it posted on your Facebook account. The trend just keeps on as you tag your own circle of friends to do the same. For some, they just really want to try if they can really keep up with the challenge.

This viral activity though is now being used as a click bait campaign to harvest Facebook credentials as soon as the victim tried to play the supposed YouTube video.

These attempts to get your social media accounts will have more variants in the future as long as users will continue to fall victims. Awareness is the key to keep yourself away from these attacks.
