Viruses spread easily on social networks… because of their limbs!
Five years ago, hackers mostly used emails to spread viruses. However, over time, Internet users have become more suspicious and think twice before clicking on a link that they think is suspicious! On the other hand, we must admit that Internet users are much less careful on social networks. Probably because these are websites dedicated to leisure: Internet users drop their guard and are better able to click on the links that are in front of their eyes!
In addition, on social networks, it is possible to spread viruses in several ways:
Some hackers post fake posts that refer to malicious and virus-infested sites: they share quickly because the themes are chosen to attract clicks.
Others simply hack a member's account to spread a malicious link on their profile or via instant messaging. This member's contacts are not suspicious: they click and share the link without question.
And many other methods: hackers really have a lot of imagination when it comes to trying Internet users!
Some common-sense tips to adopt on social networks.
If you want to avoid viruses on social networks, we advise you to follow these tips:
Choose a complicated password to avoid your account hack
Avoid sharing information that you think is suspicious to your contacts
Avoid clicking on links that you don't know where you're from or that you think are suspicious: trust your instincts!
What about the anti-virus in all this?
We also advise you to install an anti-virus on your computer, set it up well and do regular scans. Thus, the program will be able to block downloads that are malicious: an additional protection very interesting to put in place knowing that it is sometimes difficult to realize what is really risky or safe on the most popular social networks like Facebook and Twitter!
