How many times has this happened to you? You are on your favorite social networking site and one of your friends sends you a message or posts, "Check out this cool video!" So you click the video and are told that you need to upgrade your software to watch it. Maybe you do. And maybe you just got hacked. Maybe your Twitter account will suddenly start sending out inappropriate messages to all of your followers, or asking them for money, or worse. By now, we all know not to open suspicious emails, attachments from people we don't know, and all the rest. But the thing is, the bad guys know you know it. That's why their schemes have become much more savvy, social, and dangerous.
