Malicious apps that claim to allow users to see who has been viewing their Facebook profile are not new. During the last week, two new such scams have emerged.
A bogus website called FB Stalker claims to show Facebook users who has been looking at their profile. Clicking through to the link takes users to FBStalker26.com – a phishing site that replicates the legitimate Facebook login page. The site harvests email addresses, passwords and security questions and answers.
In a similar scam, a fake profile viewer app tricks users into installing a malicious Flash Player browser extension that allows cybercriminals to hijack Facebook accounts, log keystrokes and monitor user activity.
Always be wary of such apps, and if you do become a victim, change your Facebook password immediately and remove rogue browser plugins without delay.
