There's some buzz over the fact that Facebook is now suing a Canadian porn firm for trying to hack into its servers. The details are pretty light at this point, but a reasonable guess would be that, if the company really was hacking Facebook, it was trying to get info in order to spam Facebook's users. Still, considering that Facebook allows companies to create their own apps on its platform, it makes you wonder why anyone would bother hacking Facebook, when you could get a much better result by building a viral app within the site. Of course, that would assume whoever tried to hack into Facebook actually thought things through -- and that may be assuming too much.
