“THE YUMA EXCHANGE!!” gets hacked

YUMA, Ariz. – A pornographic picture showing what appears to be a young boy and an older female in a sexual position is lingering on Facebook, but police say it’s all part of a virus.

Yuma Police Department (YPD) officials say the picture has been linked to “THE YUMA EXCHANGE!!” twice. Police say the link has turned out to be a virus both times and advise Facebook users not to click on the picture or link.

“THE YUMA EXCHANGE!!” is a Facebook page where people buy, sell, and trade items.

YPD says they have learned this virus is not only affecting Facebook pages in Arizona but in other states.

Officers say they are aware of the situation and are looking into the reported incidents.

If you have any questions you can contact YPD as (928) 783-4421.
