    Greetz.

    Try changing your login details, change your password, and also go into your "FB" privacy settings and change the application settings to Disallow.

    You have most likely clicked an advertisement/application while browsing "FB" and allowed it to post onto your wall.

    If you deleted the access points on your phone, and it is automatically coming back there are 2 possibilities AFAIK:

    1) The access point is created from your service provider, and is legitimate.
    2) Your mobile device is infected with malware; A factory reset might be worth a shot otherwise a hardware reset/firmware upgrade would be ideal.


    [edit]
    3) Contact your service provider and discuss the problem with them, and mention the access points. They may be less than helpful
    4) View the details of a suspicious access point and find out more information based on access point name/gateway etc and do some googling

    Factory reset will take time...i'll have to backup contacts and messages. Plus some additional info from it.

    The access point details aren't visible,so no help there. Company firmware upgrade is on my cards,lets see what happens..

    Thanks for the support cyber!

    Factory reset may take time.... especially needing to backup your contacts etc.... however if you believe your phone or computer is compromised.... i would not advise waiting to "see what happens" as I am sure it will be nothing good.

    Very true. Damage control later on may take much more time.
