After just hearing on the news about someone who had their pay pal account hacked, I thought I would post and just warn people about staying safe online.
Chat rooms have in the past been abused by hackers, as it can give people an opportunity to exchange email addresses and from there exchange files over something like msn messenger, and take advantage of someone who isn’t really aware of the dangers online.
The problem with exchanging files over something like msn messenger, is unless you know what to look for, you cant 100% tell if this file is save, there have been occasions in the past, where people have been send Trojans over msn messenger, which give the person access to your pc and also everything you type on your keyboard.
It turns out the hacker logged all the users Pay pal details and logged into their account and sent money to their own account, without the original Pay pal users knowing.
So if you chat online you need to be careful, while you are in World of Chat, you are safe, as our site has no spy ware, or viruses on our site.
If you move away from World of Chat, then you are not longer under our protection.
If you want to protect yourself, make sure you have a good firewall, virus protection and spy ware protection.
This should keep your online chat a lot safer.
