Facebook rogue applications still lurking around

Recently I made a post on Malware Disasters about rogue applications on Facebook.

Here's a small excerpt:

For quite some time now there are rogue applications trying to convince you that you are able to check whoever viewed your profile. There are a lot of different names for this rogue application, some but not all include:

  • creep exterminators
  • catch them being creepy
  • creepy profile peekers
  • privacy bros
  • we catch stalkers

Profile Creeps application

You can read the full article here:


Conclusion is quite simple: never trust an application on Facebook that promises things that look too good to be true. When things look too good to be true, they probably are ;) .

Always be careful when allowing applications access to your data and/or wall.
