    Facebook Pro and several other not-made-by-facebook Tiles do this very thing. I made the error of signing in once, I logged out as quick as I could. Once I find out they are safe, I'll use them again. I need to know more. A Truly Legit app would use my Skydrive account, which is connected to a lot of the services I use. One "Word Doc Reader" actually was UPLOADING my private Word Docs up to some unnamed website! Why would a Word READER need to upload my files somewhere?

    I am positive that at least one of my Windows 8 Metro apps is an unmitigated Virus
    Doubt that they are the virus, Microsoft wouldn't had passed that onto the Store. How did the app even start uploading your private Word files to some website? What was the app? The apps will use your Microsoft account if you have that setup from the get go and allow that.

    I tried one of the facebook apps and just went back to the site, I didn't see a need to use one. I would definitely use the People app IF they improve it. Windows Phone's People Hub whomps the Windows 8 app down into the ground.

    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center/Windows 7

    These *******s are tricky, There is probably no way to scan the apps for a virus at this time, because they are in a container of some sort, just like iOS apps.
