Tanner Dwyer Friend Request Hacker Hoax

Outline
Circulating social media message warns users that accepting friend requests from Tanner Dwyer, Christopher Butterfield, Stefania Colac or Alejando Spiljner can allow hackers to access your computer and steal personal information.

Brief Analysis

This is just the latest incarnation in a long running series of hoaxes that falsely claim that your computer can be hacked just by accepting a friend request or adding someone to your contact list.
