Next Top Five Emerging Malware Threats-5 Next

Attacks through social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn are on the rise as cyber criminals plant exploits and malicious links on these sites. The main problem is that, if someone posts a Facebook link, friends are very likely to click on it — a huge problem when malware or a worm is used to exploit that trust.
