  • While I can’t speak for Tom, the reactions I most often hear from people when I talk about these risks are that they didn’t realize their anti-virus software wouldn’t protect them from many of these types of malicious code attacks. Web filtering software is also seen as a crutch by many organizations, too.

    Thanks for the comments!

    The talk I gave to the social media club went really well. The problem I see is that people that are really into Twitter and social media in general are somewhat oblivious to some of the security concerns. Even if they have their account compromised some don’t really see it as a big deal. Most people that listened to my talk were surprised that there is a lot of bad things out there in the world of social media. That’s why I recommend security professionals get out there and talk to people like these. It’s good to see how users really use this technology and to hopefully help on the education front.
