Facebook Users Targeted In Scams [news.bbc.co.uk]
|Facebook has been targeted by malicious hackers seeking to steal valuable data from members. |
The social network site has been hit by five separate security problems in the last seven days, say security experts.
By creating fake messages padded with details of Facebook members the thieves are capitalising on the trust and social links that drive the network.
Security firms warn that the popularity of social networking sites makes them a tempting target for hi-tech thieves.
