Around 1100 complaints have been received regarding social networks during past four months, Sri Lanka Computer Emergency Readiness  Team (SLCERT) said today.

CERT Information Security Engineer Roshan Chandragupta said the majority of the received complaints had been related to fake Facebook profiles.

He further said that Facebook users must take special precautions to ensure their cyber safety such as publishing their personnel images under ‘friends only’ category.

“Facebook users should keep in mind to add known people as such their friends and to not to accept unknown requests,” Mr. Chandragupta said.

In 2016 about 2200 facebook fake profile related complaints were received, he said. (Chaturanga Pradeep)
