Social network scams:  Unsurprisingly hoaxers have now begun turning their attention to social networking websites and such attacks are on the rise. One of the more notorious threats is a worm that goes by the moniker 'Koobface'. This has been known to attack users of Facebook and other social networks by posting comments on your profile (posing as one of your friends). These comments will contain veiled links to external websites that in turn compromise your security. My advice would be to delete any suspicious messages and ask questions later! Always be on your guard, these days you can never be too careful.
