Cybersecurity – TIP of the Week – Social networks can be used to spread malware


Never click on unknown links or download files through social media accounts.

Links and files on social networks can include viruses and malware. Never click on links from people that you don’t know and don’t download files that are sent to you through a social media platform. Be skeptical  of any links that look unusual, such as a link that comes from someone you haven’t spoken to in a long time. Even someone you know could have their account hacked and used to send out malware.

If you think your device may have malware or compromised in some way, we have advice at Compromised Computers or Devices.

Stay safe and #BeCyberSmart
