Kaspersky Lab And Facebook Partner To Make Social Networking Safer

ABINGDON, England, October 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Kaspersky Lab enhances Facebook Security and provides users with free sixth month software subscriptions

Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of security and threat management solutions, today announced a partnership with Facebook (NASDAQ: FB), with the goal of enhancing the security of social networking both online and offline.  Kaspersky Lab is now supplying Facebook with up-to-the-minute data about the latest malicious software threats worldwide, which will be used to protect Facebook users from inadvertently visiting malicious web pages.

People are more likely to click on a link shared by a friend, and this inherent trust is something cyber-criminals prey upon. Malicious URLs can automatically share themselves with a victim's personal contacts without the user's knowledge, making the links appear legitimate.  Now, when Facebook users share or click a link shared by their friends, the link will instantly be compared against Kaspersky Lab's database of malicious web pages.  If the link matches Facebook's list of known 'bad' URLs - which are supplied to Facebook by Kaspersky Lab and other security vendors - the user will be immediately notified and blocked from visiting the web page.  This not only prevents the user's personal information and computer from being put at risk, but stops the malicious links from spreading further.

At Kaspersky Lab, more than 800 anti-malware experts work around the globe and around the clock to combat cybercrime, analysing more than 125,000 threats daily.  

Using the information from the Kaspersky Security Network - a cloud-based repository from Kaspersky Lab customers who voluntarily share real-time data on attempted infections and malware activity - Kaspersky Lab experts can analyse data and produce up-to-the-second protection for its 300 million users protected by Kaspersky Lab products and technologies around the globe.
