An application tried to trick users Facebook fake social networking. He was disguised as a warning of the attacks by hackers.
As noted Alfons Tanujaya, antivirus analysts from Vaksincom, applications that bring the message that there are people who are trying to hijack the user’s Facebook account.
Well, to overcome, the application prompts the user sending the request to all his friends. This is referred to as a way to verify.
Through the application of this request could spread his message to other Facebook users. And, thus, potentially trapping the other users.
That was held last hoax applications are lead users to fill out online surveys. Alfons suspect, application developers will earn money every time a victim fill out the survey.
Currently, applications that trick did not seem to steal the victim account or password. However Alfons warned, it could happen in the future.
“If you fall victim to these apps, please inform all your contacts to ignore this request,” said Alfonso.
Applications with similar mode, said Alfons, ever happen on Facebook. It is feared, this mode will continue to be done by the cyber criminals.
