The Star (14 June 2012)
PETALING JAYA: A graphic designer was not aware that pornographic pictures appeared on his Facebook page until a friend alerted him.
The 25-year-old man, who wanted to be known only as Shan, said he had been asleep at home when he received the call from his friend.
"I found that I could no longer log in to my account as the password had been changed.
"Someone was using my account to post the content under my name," he said, adding that he then contacted his friends and asked them to delete the compromised account from their list.
Cybersecurity Malaysia CEO Lt-Col (Rtd) Prof Datuk Husin Jazri said there were special devices in the market that enabled anyone to "sniff" WiFi networks.
