Unnamed App Facebook Hoax/Scam

Flagged by Peter Kruse on a specialist list.

A hoax is circulating on Facebook, warning about a virus that is supposed to add an “Unnamed App” to the FB tabs.

SEO actually drives the incautious Googler towards fake AV.

I blogged this at some length at ESET, so I won’t repeat it all here.
