One million Facebook users warned their login details may have been stole

Facebook is notifying 1m users that their login details may have been stolen thanks to fake Android and Apple programmes posing as legitimate mobile apps.

“Our security researchers have found more than 400 malicious Android and iOS apps this year that were designed to steal Facebook login information and compromise people’s accounts,” said David Agranovich, Facebook’s director of threat disruption.

The malicious apps were uploaded to the Apple and Google Play app stores and posed as innocent, unrelated programmes. Some appeared to be photo-editing software, Facebook said, while others posed as free games or music players.
