What was the purpose of the app?

This malware seemed to be an application that could convert photos into cartoon images, an attractive concept for mobile users. In the app, “Facestealer” offered users to link their Facebook account to the app by displaying a fake social networking interface.

Once the manipulation is done, hackers send phishing links to their social media friends to steal users’ personal data and spread false information through their accounts, commit fraud and even multiply victims.
