With social media being the latest hub of excitement for not only everyday users to keep in touch with each other but also now used for marketing campaigns by companies to target particular traffic… it is no surprise that hackers are starting to get involved.
Just this morning, Kaspersky have warned about the latest malicious virus going about and it can be found on Facebook chat messages that look like the following:
Many users see Facebook as a trusted site and so might click on the link out of interest which will then lead them to quizzes and eventually the user having to pay out money.
Due to the nature of SmarterWays as a business, we look after our client’s social media, websites, IT support and much more.
