Report: More Cyberattacks Hitting Social Networks

Cnet: A new report from security vendor Webroot finds that 18 percent of social network users have been hit by social networking malware this year. That’s an increase from 13 percent in 2010 and 8 percent in 2009.

“Threats targeting social networks are continuously being regenerated in new versions so their makers can evade detection and spread their malicious programs relentlessly across users’ accounts,” said Webroot’s Jacques Erasmus. “Over the last nine months, our threat intelligence network has detected more than 4,000 versions of the Koobface virus hit social network users.”
