Is there any Facebook hack or application to know who viewed your profile?

I don't think that's possible unless it's released by facebook themselves.

Know what you can do.
There is a bunch of vulnerabilities that some still is and some was useful that you can or could use on the website but I haven't seen any that can actually gain admin rights on the server, the ssh port 22 is open but what are the odds of cracking in there unless you know the username of the ssh server that is a valid admin/root user. There should be ways and if there isn't yet then there will eventually be, but those methods will just be countered with security patches and stuff like that.

Why would you even run a port scan on facebook? I hope you went through a proxy.
I don't think this is what the original post was about. It was about a "hack" to be able to see who viewed your profile.

I did not use a proxy as there is no need, and facebook hack can mean anything from hacking the actual server or the website. I prefer to play around with the server but as I said the only possible way I can see that a person will successfully gain access to the server is called smashing the stack. About seeing who checked your profile and how often I don't believe there is a app for that, so if your thoughts for that is huh? then go do some reading. I was only discussing it more in depth.

First, there is a need for a proxy, even if you don't intend to break in. Think of it like you going to your local government branch after closing and trying all the doors and rattling all the windows. It doesn't matter if you don't intend to get in, the people watching the security tapes will still take you for a thief.
lol the terminology of "smashing the stack" isn't used much except in literature, like the original publication that first notified the public of the concept, titled "Smashing the Stack for Fun and Profit". Most hackers just call it a buffer overflow. And no, not all exploits/vulnerabilities depend on buffer overflows. Many don't.

nice way to talk to the admin.
There can't be an app unless facebook admins grant it access to their logs.

Fisrt off, I wasnt talikng to the admin as I have great respect for shabbir, secondly buffer overflow or smashing the stack causes a program to crash or operate incorrectly, the aim is then to inject executable code into the running program and then to try and take control of the process. It is a very old method but it still works on some systems. All I meant by that is to try that with the facebook server which is very dangerous in my eyes as you are very likely to get caught. I hope you understand me now?
