Social networks are a hacker's paradise. Today more so than ever, it's easy for bad guys(tm) to infect millions of people on Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social networks with little or no effort. Corporate espionage, bank account stealing worms and viruses, frustratingly hard to remove spyware - you name it, social networking makes it that much easier for these things to spread. This session will cover some of most effective and amusing techniques that hackers are using today to infect the masses. Focusing on a couple of the more popular social networks, we'll also walk through basic privacy and security checklists that everyone should use to fortify their accounts. Finally, if you suspect your computer is infected as the result of opening a file or visiting a strange link sent from your grandmother on Myspace, etc., this session will demonstrate how to most effectively scan and cleanse your system using free tools.
