Professional sites hit by cyber crime

Priyanka (name changed) was in for a shock recently when she logged into her LinkedIn account. She had received a thread of messages from someone named Dr Arjun Pandey, Head of Research and Development at the Sajjan India Limited. The man had sent her increasingly lewd messages on the network meant for professionals.

Speaking to DNA, Priyanka revealed that she did not file an FIR against the man since she had no faith in the system. “Filing a complaint against the man will be very troublesome for me. I would be making multiple trips to the police station while taking care of my family. I’m not even sure whether the cops would be able to help,” she said.

Children want social media sites to protect them from pornography and cyber bullying, NSPCC report warns

Four out of five children want Facebook and other social media sites to protect them from pornography and bullying, an NSPCC report has warned.

The charity said that from the 1,696 children and young people surveyed, the majority – 1,380 – felt that companies are currently not doing enough to protect them from pornography, self-harm, bullying, and hatred on their sites.

The findings follow calls from campaigners for the Government to crack down on the content published by social media sites.

Children rated ASKfm, Omegle, IMVU, and Facebook as some of the most risky sites in the major survey, leading the NSPCC to urge parents to look beyond the well known social media applications and find out about the more obscure apps their children are using.

The findings are revealed in the latest Net Aware guide, the UK’s only parents’ guide to 39 of the most popular social media sites, apps,

Cyber-Criminals Found a Home on Social Media Sites

The number of members in fraud-related groups on social media platforms has increased 70 percent in the past six months, according to a new study. It states that social media is a breeding ground for cyber-crime and is attracting fraudsters because these platforms are free, easy to use and offer global reach. According to RSA, which conducted the report, “2017 Global Fraud and Cybercrime Forecast,” fraud posts first showed up on social media in 2011, when credit cards and e-commerce accounts began being published. “Initially residing in the hidden cracks in corners of social media, the level of fraud activity rapidly rose to flood the network with fraud offerings,” says RSA’s blog about the report, “and now, the vast majority of fraudsters operate largely in the open, and many even sell and trade stolen credit card data and hacking kits from their own personal profiles.
