Users of the popular MySpace website have been warned by computer experts that viruses linked to the interactive site...are in circulation. Experts believe that hackers have hit the hugely popular site...They believe that the hackers have hidden dangerous software on the site which means that computers can be attacked unaware to users while they are just viewing pages. ..

a quote from the site at dailymail.co.uk

"About time. MySpace is the equivalent of a dirty bathroom in cyberspace, and 90% of people who use it don't know the first thing about computers, and frankly shouldn't be using the Internet. What a target-rich environment!"

i believe this is a biggie.its true. people say they know how to use one but they don't understand vunerabilityies and other aspects of the computer, and they assume its safe becuase many other people use it.
"Ideas are far more powerful than guns."
"The only truly secure system is one that is powered off, cast in a block of concrete and sealed in a lead-lined room with armed guards -- and even then I have my doubts." --Eugene H. Spafford
