we told you about a hacker attack disguised as a Microsoft security alert. Another
new threat consists of bogus
social networking links
that are simply a direct road to malware, at least
according to a report from the Georgia Tech Information Security Center.
I'm pretty savvy about computers, but there's a tiny part of me that's tempted
to click on these links. I even had a boss that once clicked on an "I Love
You" message...and you probably know the rest. The whole organization was
infected with the "I Love You Virus."
These tricks will continue to work, which means anti-virus/anti-malware defenses
have to be strong.
