The more popular the place is in any country, the more vulnerability it has towards safety and security. Similar is with the Internet sites. Facebook is one of the largest populated sites that attract its users from almost all countries of the world. It is also largest portal in terms of applications. At any moment of time it has millions of users from across the world. And that is why it is Mecca for miscreants, hackers and virus generators.
Nearly three quarters of a million users on Facebook was asked for resetting their password starting last Monday with a reason given to them was – ‘for security purpose’, though the real reason was identity theft. Such like sites have to seriously look into the risk involved as the identity hack can really bring millions of its users into intended disastrous troubles. [via ITWorldCanada]
