Facebook Is Working On More Security Features Tied Up With Kaspersky To Secure Your Account


Facebook Is Working On More Security features Tied Up With Kaspersky To Secure Your Account.

Many of the Facebook users are targeted by Phisher attacks and intellectual activities, now Kaspersky Lab is ready to protect your Facebook account.

Facebook security engineer Trevor Pottinger said, “Thanks to the collaboration with these companies, in the past three months we have helped clean up more than two million people’s computers that we detected were infected with malware when they connected to Facebook,”

“In these cases, we present a cleanup tool that runs in the background while you continue using Facebook, and you get a notification when the scan is done to show you what it found.”

Pottinger said the program uses “a combination of signals to help find infections and get the malware off of your computer for good, even if the malware isn’t actively spreading spam or harmful links.”

Kaspersky Lab’s Kate Kochetkova said in blog post that Facebook users are often targeted in online fraud schemes such as “phishing,” which are faked emails designed to get recipients to download malware.

“Facebook is a major aim for phishers: one in five phishing scams targets Facebook notifications. So be vigilant when you receive emails appearing to be from Facebook: as they can be fake. There are lots of Trojans targeting Facebook users as well,” she said.

"If the Facebook team has detected suspicious behavior from your account and it looks as though it might be infected, the social network will suggest you scan your device for security issues. Upon logging in, you will see a warning page like this, offering the security scan."
