Currently, it is impossible to tell who is viewing your profile so, do not be fooled by the malicious application. The application will post malicious links to your Facebook wall or to all your friends Facebook walls, if you give it permission to access your Facebook profile.

Once on the Facebook page, the Facebook application from the website untilr.co.cc, will display bogus information stating that a couple thousand persons "Like" and used the same application. This was done to persuade you into giving the application access to your profile. Now, if you click the "Continue" button on the same page, you will be requested to give access to the same application and the following message will appear: "Who viewed Your Profile is requesting permission to do the following."

But, whatever you do, please DO NOT allow the application access to your profile. If you are on the same page, click the "Don't Allow" button. Some anti-virus software will block the website www.untilr.co.cc, where the malicious application is stored.

    Facebook probably did this to protect you from these websites that claim that they can do something that is currently not possible.

    I tried www.whoviewedmyfacebook.com and no result. I think facebook blocks these type of applications along with their developers also :)
