    I just started receiving this and can't like, comment, post status updates or upload photos. Is this a bug? I've done nothing wrong that I know of.

    Thank you.

    Have you asked Facebook support about that?

    I can't post at all, so there's no way to ask them on the site.

    On the desktop browser site as well?

    I never attempted looking at the site. I was checking the log today and found this post from Facebook about the ban:

    It looks like you've used Facebook on a computer, phone or tablet that may be affected by malware. We're temporarily limiting your activity on the affected device to keep your account secure while we try to fix the problem. In the meantime, you can keep using Facebook as usual on your current device.
    When I was FB jailed, I was using my tablet over Barnes and Noble wifi. Could that have something to do with it? What makes FB think they can detect malware on a person's computer/device?

    This is something I've never run into before. Do these messages appear on your Facebook wall itself, or are they popup warnings?

    What happens when you tap "More Info" on that first warning message?

    They are pop-ups that occur when you try to comment or post. Tapping Help just takes you to Facebook's help page.

    I suppose someone could have hacked your account and started posting crazy stuff on your behalf. Are you able to look at your recent posts?

    I checked my activity log and it showed nothing I hadn't done.

    Keep trying to contact a person at FB support. That's probably how you'll have to resolve this.

    I was able to start using Facebook again after 6 PM on Sunday. The reason given was because they said they detected malware on my tablet. I ran MBAM on it and nothing less detected.

    Huh, weird. Maybe Facebook should come out with a security app!

    They obviously think they're qualified in the subject.
