Facebook Boosts Security After Dual Phishing Attacks



The popular Facebook social-networking site had to take measures to boost its security because of recent malware and phishing scams.

To resolve their problem Facebook added MarkMonitor's antifraud services to help boost the security measures, though the problem has been resolved for now; many users would remain very skeptical for their security.
