Facebook and Twitter flooded by Whitney Houston Scams - Page 2
Scams such as these are becoming a lot more common in many social networking services, most especially Facebook and Twitter, therefore frequent users should be more aware and be more familiar in protecting themselves and their accounts from malicious scams such as these. Hoaxes exploiting the deaths of such public figures as Whitney Houston will still continue, so for the casual users, do not download anything suspicious that may appear on your wall post or your timeline, even if they come from the accounts of your friends. More importantly, make sure that your antivirus software is frequently updated and scan your system accordingly. Not only do these malicious survey sites would dupe a user in to providing sensitive private information to continue on, but a mouse click on a link can also be an easy trace for the cybercriminal to track down your private information stored in your system. Be very vigilant at all times and use your basic common sense.
