Help your users understand what to do if their personal information has been compromised.
Cisco has warned that cyber crooks have targeted LinkedIn users with a scheme designed to get their bank account information, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.
The people behind the attacks are sending spam e-mail messages with a fictitious social media request.
Users that click the phony link will have their PC infected with the ZeuS data theft malware by a drive-by download.
ZeuS embeds itself in the victim's Web browser and captures your personal information, such as online banking credentials, and is widely used to criminals to pilfer commercial band accounts.
The e-mails have at times accounted for nearly a quarter of spam sent to LinkedIn users. Cisco has advised the users to delete such contact requests, especially if they do not know who it is from.
