Report Hackers to Facebook

According to the third article of the Safety section in Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, willfully compromising a user's account on the social networking constitutes a violation of Facebook's user agreement.

Reporting such violations may be performed in a number of ways, depending on the situation. If either you or your friend's Facebook account has been hacked, file a report through Facebook's Help Center.

If you are aware of a specific user on Facebook who is engaged in hacking other accounts, file a report regarding his activity through his profile page.

Go to Facebook.com, type the email and password associated with your account in the corresponding text fields and press "Enter."

Click "Account" in the top menu bar and select "Help Center."

Click "Security" in the "Popular Topics" section.

Click "I Think My Account is Compromised" in the Account Security menu.

Click either of the two security questions, depending on your situation, and click "Secure it here."

Click "Secure Account" and click "Continue."

Complete each of the steps for securing your account, including changing your password, changing your email password, reviewing your changes and unlocking your account.

Click "Done" to complete the process.

The developers at Facebook receive a notification regarding your account being compromised.
Report Your Friend's Compromised Profile

Sign into Facebook, click "Account" in the top menu bar and select "Help Center."

How to Hack
A hacker is a person who legally breaks into a computer system to identify the security flaws in that system.

A hacker is someone companies hire to enter such systems and resolve these issues.
People who hack into computer systems with malicious intent are actually known as "crackers" this is not hacking.

Read on to learn more.
Learn how to program.

Start with a program such as "Python," but learn many programs and the basics of programming.
Install Unix on your computer.

There are many operating systems out there, but this one is the easiest and best to use if you're going to hack.

Teach yourself how a computer system works.
There are no schools to learn to hack.

There is a site called Hack this Site where you can go to train and test your hacking skills.
Practice your skills on a project.

Rewrite the program with subtle changes.
You should be able to gain access to a file, program or data base that is protected while remaining oblivious to others working on this project.

Submit your resumes to companies that need hackers.
Some choices are large companies, banks and government agencies but this list is not all inclusive.

Hack into the computer system of the company you work for after it hires you.
Attempt to access records that are password protected.

Your company contract outlines exactly what hacking duties you must perform for the company.
Report your findings to the company.

You must hack the computer system while remaining totally invisible to others working in the system.

Identify the security flaws and ways to patch these flaws so not even you can hack into the computer system again.

My facese book account as been compromised whenever I try to send a in box message I am told that I am sending spam


Good Day!
You were lucky cause you are being warned and stopped from sending email. Most of the time a user of an account is unaware that his/her account is spamming. Spamming means someone manage to get your username and password and uses your account to send unwanted emails to your friend's list. The owner of the account was unaware of the activities on its account and will only know it if one from the friends list informed that she/he is sending emails with links.
And you are still lucky that your account is not yet disabled.

The best and easiest way to fix a victim of spamming is to renew your password.
You can go to
https://www.facebook.com/recover.php (click this link)
Provide your user id or email address. Then, follow the onscreen instruction and at the end it will reset your password.
To regain access to Facebook, try to look first at the inbox on your mail account, for the security code that Facebook sent to you. If security code is not in the inbox, search it at the spam folders.

And if your facebook account is blocked, please go to http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=disabled
(click this link)
fill up the form and click the Submit button.
or

You can write to disabled@facebook.com, express your interest on recovering your account.
Explain why your account should not be disabled.
There are also helpful tips that you can find from this link:
