Malicious Android Games "Cowboy Adventure" and "Jump Chess" Steal Facebook Credentials
The Malicious Android Games
The games work, but will ask the users for their Facebook user names and passwords, which will be sent to the cyber-criminals behind the malicious games.
The cyber-criminals will then hijack their victims’ Facebook accounts using the credentials that were sent to them, and use the accounts fraudulently.
So, if you have downloaded, installed and played the games, please change your Facebook password immediately and remove the games from your device.
