Steps to reproduce:

Downloaded the add-on from https://code.google.com/p/myanmar-facebook/


Actual results:

Once installed, the add-on harvests the victim's facebook account details and then uses them to fraudulently report a series of 10 victim facebook pages as malicious.  This wave of false reporting has the potential to prevent those victim pages from appearing on facebook.


Expected results:

It shouldn't hijack your facebook account to submit fake abuse reports to facebook.
