So I got a notification that a friend had tagged me in a video. I clicked it, it asked me to add an app (I hate that, and usually don't do it), I add it, and it loads up a giant, stupid picture of some face, and then I see my notification thing light up like a christmas tree, telling me that I just sent out a mega-asston of notifications to my friends list (apparently randomly, probably all of them).

The notifications showed an "Undo" link, so I quickly clicked Undo on all the ones I saw, but then seconds later, I get bombed with more notifications from friends saying they commented my status, tagged me in a photo, commented on a photo of mine, etc., all coming from the "Feed" application. Seems like a MalwareMalwarebytes Anti-virus / Anti-malware type app.

Anyone else get this? I removed the app already, and am changing my password just to be smart.

If you happened to run the "Feed" application, and also have the un named app, it'd help if you posted here saying so, so we can all help put 2 and 2 together. Smile

Update: I originally thought it may be connected to this, but it turns out that unnamed app, facebook spybot is just a hoax. If you deleted your "Boxes" tab you can fix it with the instructions in that link.

Re: Facebook Feed

No I didn't see it. But I've been on the iPhone app so far today. I am getting rid of one app I approved cause it keeps nagging me. Facebook apps really do suck.

Re: Facebook Feed

It's the same way with some pictures. You get a notification that someone has commented on a picture of you, and you have to add the app to see it. I made the mistake once, and it sent all my friends a notifications.

Re: Facebook Feed

I just got a couple more notices that friends tagged me in photos, even though they don't have any photos of me to tag me in. The link to the app looks like this:

https://www.facebook.com/add.php?api_key=dc03b9594465cf22586b04570e7267b1&next=index.php&user=1264553922-1420416376
https://www.facebook.com/add.php?api_key=dc03b9594465cf22586b04570e7267b1&next=index.php&user=1264554020-1645334213

The "user=" has what looks like two friend id's, the second one is the friend id of the person who sent you the notice, the first one is staying the same, except for the last 4 digits. I tried going to the profile id manually just to see what it was by adding it to the end of this:

https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=XXXXX

But it just redirects me to my home page. Strange stuff.

Re: Facebook Feed

From one of my friends a few minutes ago. If anyone happens to fall for this, I'd recommend deleting the "Feed" app, and changing passwords right away, just to be on the safe side.
