Facebook Steps Up Security
Trying to make its platform a safer place for users, Facebook is now inviting anyone to email suspected phishing incidents to firstname.lastname@example.org. And not a moment too soon, according to The Next Web. “Nearing a billion users, Facebook has become a dedicated target for phishers and scammers, which use numerous techniques to try and get members to part with their personal information,” it writes. Facebook already employs algorithms and automated systems to detect rogue web Sites but, as TNW notes, sometimes they managed to evade their blacklists.
