Facebook Colour Changing App Virus Affects 10,000 Users Post Posted: Sat Aug 09, 2014 11:21 am

A new Facebook app virus offering users to change the color scheme of their FB profile has resurfaced.

The spam, a color changing app called the 'Facebook color changer' offers nine different colors for the profile background.

According to the reports, the latest scam has already affected over 10,000 users around the world.

When the users log-in to their Facebook accounts, they receive a pop up of an app advertisement that tells the users they can change the color theme of their profile background. Once, a user downloads it, he/she is directed to a malicious phishing site.

The website targets users by stealing their Facebook Access Tokens by asking them to view a color changer tutorial video.

Temporary access to the tokens allows hackers to connect to the user's Facebook friends.

If a user does not view the video, the website tries to get them to download the malicious application.
