Almost everyone has had their social media accounts compromised at least once in the past, where their accounts automatically share scam links to friends and followers. 

 

===> Today’s attack on Buffer <=== showed just how easy it is for a reputable company to cause its users to become victims of social media attacks, despite having done nothing wrong.

 

It’s hard to know what to do in these situations so we’ve prepared a primer on how you can deal with attacks if  your social media account were to be compromised.

 

Gust MEES's insight:
