Vietnamese Internet users vulnerable to hackers

Without proper security attention, the development of Web 2.0 technology and social networks in Vietnam may enable hackers to attack computers with malicious codes. ¡§The massive development of Web 2.0 applications in Vietnam is a red alarm in network security,¡¨ said Vo Do Thang, Director of the Athena network security centre. Thang said that many new websites are being launched with open applications that allow users to upload and share pictures and videos. However, most of these sites don¡¦t have systems to prevent malicious codes, which are often hidden in media files uploaded by users. Users download these files to their computers and also download malicious codes. Servers for Web 2.0, particularly social networks, aim to attract new members by open-applications while security is not addressed properly.
