Companies Rank Riskiest Social Networking Sites
SOCIAL NETWORKINGFebruary 3, 2010
A survey of 500 companies worldwide by the security firm Sophos has found that 60 percent consider Facebook to be the riskiest social-networking site, USA TODAY reports. The survey also indicated that 72 percent of the companies are concerned that using social-networking sites could lead to a security breach. Graham Cluley, a senior analyst at Sophos, states that Facebook's new privacy settings allow the site to disseminate more user information across the Web, and that, he says, "inevitably means more information will be made available to cybercriminals who want to target you or your company for an attack."
