Fake color changing app gives virus to Facebook users

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — If you come across an app claiming it can change the color of your Facebook profile page, don’t click on it. It’s a virus!

When Facebook users click on the fake app, it sends them to a malicious website that directs them to watch a video about how to change the color of their profile page.

By agreeing to watch it, the users give hackers access to their profiles, letting the app spam their friends.

More than 10,000 people around the world have already been fooled.
