Facebook Beefs Up Security With Computer Security Company Mcafee

Current news updates, World current news
NEW YORK – Facebook is trying to beef up security with a few outside help. Computer security company McAfee will now scan and renovate the computers of Facebook users whose accounts have been compromised.

The scanning process will be added to the steps Facebook already makes users of such accounts take if they want to reclaim their pages.

Facebook's more than 350 million users can also get a free 6-month subscription to McAfee's Internet security software. After that, though, they will have to pay up.

As part of the deal, Facebook says McAfee will be its only provider of consumer security software for a year.

Facebook says spam as well as viruses affects a tiny percentage of its users. But hackers are more and more targeting the social sites as they become a core part of the Web.
