Windows 7: The state of Facebook security

The state of Facebook security


There's an in-depth piece published today by John Leyden, The Register's security correspondent, describing the different opinions of Facebook and Sophos when it comes to security on the world's most popular social network.

In a nutshell, Facebook disputes the findings of our recent Security Threat Report which discovered an increasing proportion of Facebook users say that they had encountered spam, malware and phishing attacks on the social network.
One thing is certain, and is unlikely to be news that's welcomed at Facebook HQ.

There is a growing perception out there that Facebook isn't the safest of places to be.

Take for instance, the 'Social Security' poll results we released earlier this week - asking the opinion of over 1200 computer users. We asked them which social network they felt posed the biggest security risk, and Facebook won by a country mile with 82%.
