Beware of the ‘Facebook Color Changer App’ Malware Scam!

Have you come across the Facebook Color Changer App? Be informed that, this is yet another scam by hackers to target Facebook users. According to latest reports, about 10,000 Facebook users have already fallen prey to this scam and infected their computers.

facebook color changer app

Known as the Facebook Color Changer App, this malicious software lures users by offering 9 different colors for their profile page. Once a user downloads the app, they are taken to a phishing site. The infection varies for desktop users and Android users.

Desktop users who are taken to the phishing site, are offered to watch a tutorial video on how to use the color changer app. If a user clicks the video, it lets hackers get temporary access to the user’s Facebook account. If the user skips to watch the video, then they are offered to download a malicious pornographic video player, which is actually a malicious software.

Android users who land on the phishing site, are tricked into installing a malware on their device by a message warning them of a malware infection and advising them to download an antivirus app.

Advise for Users Who Fell for the Facebook Color Changer Scam

– Uninstall the app from your PC and Android device.

– Change your Facebook password immediately. And if you have been using the same password for other sites, then change those passwords as well.

Having a reputed antivirus software on your PC and smartphone protects you from such malware scams and attacks. Quick Heal Total Security blocks phishing websites, and prevents infected downloads from reaching your PC. Quick Heal Total Security for Android protects your Android device from phishing websites, and malicious applications.

If i get the facebook color changing app from firefox add-ons and google chrome add-ons is it secure or not.

Reply to  satbir

Hi Satbir,

From what we have found so far, these add-ons on Chrome and Firefox seem to be safe to use. The threat mentioned in this blog post was from a fake app that was making the most of the popularity of these add-ons. So you can go ahead and use these add-ons on Chrome or Firefox.

I have licensed Quick Heal Internet Security software valid upto April 6, 2015. I renew it every time. If it would be able to protect my PC from such malware and warn me about landing on phising websites. Normally I use small time in net surfing,on average 3 hours daily. I don’t run unknown external drive. Is QHIS pack is sufficient for my PC? What other sides are NOT covered by this pack ? Please advise me properly.

Hi Subrata,

For the net related activities that you have mentioned, Internet Security is sufficient for you. However, some feature that are present on Total Security are PCTuner, PC2Mobile scan and data theft protection. If you need these features, then you should consider upgrading to Total Security, else Internet Security will suit you fine.
