Facebook Spy App

just come accross this on FB, seems as though it a wide spread thing, i had it in my settings

Copied from a friend's post: Has your facebook been running slow lately? Check your 'application settiings', go into 'added to profile'. If you see one in there called "un named app" delete it...go out of it then return to it to make sure its gone.... Its an internal spybot. Pass it on seems to have affected a lot of us.

Re: Facebook Spy App

It's so funny when people just do stuff because other people tell them to.

The "un named app" is the boxes tab on your facebook profile. If you delete it, you'll lose that tab.

Not that many people will miss it...

Re: Facebook Spy App

Same here - looks like Facebook have done something about it because of all the people thinking it was a virus.

Re: Facebook Spy App

to be honest I did delete the so called virus and if my "box" has gone I never knew what it was in the first place.
