Recently, high profile social networking accounts like French President Sarkozy, pop statr Selena Gomez, and even Mark Zuckerburg, have been attacked. With the popularity of social networks growing, it's important to know how to protect yourself. Online security software provider McAfee has provided a list of seven steps you can take to protect personal information. 1) Update your browser - Make sure you are using the newest version, to make sure you have the latest protection. 2) Do It in Private - Public Wi-Fi spots are convenient, but they are also insecure. 3) Keep 'em guessing - Use different passwords for every site. It may be hard to remember them all, but that means anybody who steals the password for one site can only access that site. 4) Double-check the domain - Make sure that the site you visit is the legitimate site you wanted to visit, not a realistic-looking spoof site. 5) Suspicious messages are suspicious for a reason - Ever get a message that seems to be from someone you know, but who almost never contacts you, but they now send you a link to a website they want you to check out? If a message seems suspicious, delete it. 6) Clear history and log out - When using a public PC, clear your history when you are done, and make sure you log out of any site you logged into. 7)Protect your PC - Make sure you have a suite of tools that protects against viruses, spyware, malware, phishing, and other malicious programs. And, make sure you have the latest version of these tools. From an article in PCWorld, excerpted on Yahoo News.
