Antivirus company Sophos is warning of a rogue Facebook application which could give hackers access to your contact information and list of friends.

Senior Technology consultant at Sophos, Graham Cluley, says the app is spread using a ‘shocking video’ message: “OMG the worlds worst mcdonalds customer (shocking video must see)”.

“Clicking on the link takes you to a Facebook application called ‘Worst McD’s Customer’ which asks permission to post to your wall, access your data at any time, access your contact information and your list of friends, amongst other things,” Cluley says.

The advice is to remove the references to the link from your newsfeed, clear your status message, and ensure that the application’s right to access your account is revoked.
