Product Description

Detecting Malicious Facebook Applications Final year IEEE projects 2016

The major reason for the popularity and addictiveness of Facebook is due to the third-party apps which are installed by many users daily.

Unfortunately, hackers have realized the potential of using apps for spreading malware and spam. Atleast 13% of apps in the dataset are malicious.Detecting Malicious Facebook Applications Final year IEEE projects 2016.

The research community has focused on detecting malicious posts and campaigns. The proposed system can determine the malicious for a Facebook application by asking questions.Detecting Malicious Facebook Applications Final year IEEE projects 2016. The main key contribution is to develop FRAppE-Facebook Rigorous Application Evaluator-arguably the first tool which focuses on detecting malicious apps on Facebook.

The FRAppE is developed by using the gathered information and by observing the posting behavior of 111K Facebook apps seen across 2.2 million users on Facebook. First, a set of features that helps to distinguish malicious apps from benign ones is identified. For example, usually, malicious apps often share names with other apps, and they typically request less permission than benign apps.

Second, FRAppE can detect malicious apps with 99.5% accuracy, with no false positives and a high true positive rate (95.9%) by leveraging these distinguishing features. Finally, the ecosystems of malicious Facebook apps are explored and mechanisms of these apps which are used to propagate are identified.

Interestingly, we find that many apps collude and support each other; in our dataset, we find 1584 apps enabling the viral propagation of 3723 other apps through their posts. Long term, we see FRAppE as a step toward creating an independent watchdog for app assessment and ranking, so as to warn Facebook users before installing apps.
