Facebook Fan Check Virus

Post by RRT on Mon Apr 05, 2010 11:58 am

There was a report about facebook application fan check,
reports says that this application is a virus kaya dapat itong
iwasan.

This was located at apps.facebook.com/fancheck/ (previously called StalkerCheck),
you’ll get
this message:

“FanCheck is adding new features and new capacity. This could take a
few days.
Please become a fan, and we’ll send you an update when
we’re back online”


According to sources, merely becoming a fan will “infect” your
Facebook account, which is highly unlikely. All other reports about the
virus seem to be created by spammers themselves. Google lists the phrase
“facebook fan check virus” as a popular trend, but there lies the
problem; if you actually try to search for this phrase, you’ll be
bombarded by sites containing malware.

This is merely a two part hoax: on one hand, you have a defunct
application that allegedly lets you see who’s been visiting your
Facebook profile – which cannot work due to Facebook’s policies, and all
applications claiming to do so are scams. On the other, spammers and
malicious hackers are feeding the rumors around this application to lead
people to search for a solution, and getting their computers infected
by malware in return.

So guys please be aware and stay away from this application.
