Defensio is the Facebook Security App

By DominicD

While these apps are entertaining and helpful online tools for your social networks, a small number of Facebook apps seem to be fake, and cause only unwanted Wall spaming. Keeping a good online reputation on Facebook may be a social concern, but the bigger picture is that rogue Facebook Apps can do more harm - stealing your personal data, spamming friends to infect them with the rogue app, and in the end stealing and spamming everyone with malicious content on Facebook.
