    The fact itself doesn't surprise me. What surprises me is the number of people who actually go in those sites.

    Ah they shouldn't be intimidated into not using those sites. Alot of the people just need to wise up a little/lot more. For instance, using all those unnecessary Apps on Myspace.

    Yea another thing is fake codec viruses through multimedia downloaded from the internet. Anytime a media player requests a codec you can be sure it is a virus.
