back to article MySpace profile hack provides early warning to predators

A security issue on MySpace may put a spanner in the works of law-enforcement efforts to track miscreants using the social networking site. Many MySpace profiles contain code that subscribes visitors to a profile's video channel. Normally this is all well and good, but hackers are able to subvert the feature for filthy purposes …

I love it...

The word predators used to describe paedophiles. It sounds like some kind of big cat ;)

Of course it hasn't been created by ever news hungry media just to distract people from any worthy news, of course not. It's all rubbish. Children kidnappings has been on the same level for the last 20 or so years but nowadays it became a huge problem. It's not that I think it's good, I personally think that those guys should be castrated, but we should get a grip and stop listening to media all the time.

Just my 2p.

lies

We sheeple know that there are predators around every street corner, in our parks, on every computer, the intorweb is infested with them! We know this! If you're over 18 and use a machine and arn't with us then you're obvously one of them! We need internet tracking on all the ISP's so that we can find all of the predators!

Predators didn't exist until the intorweb was made - now they have complex clubs, with social nights and parties! It's all the introwebs fault and you must all be tracked!

As an aside

I remember an instances of a peadophile wanting chemical castration but the law types refusing treatment becouse it wasn't economical and so - shockingly the peadophile reoffended (child pronz offences I think.)

MySpace Code is Garbage

I have a MySpace account because there's a community in which I participate.

Besides the astoundingly ugly pages full of escort ser-, er dating service Flash ads, there seems to be a system error that pops up at least three or four times during any visit. Responses to most bulletins get eaten by the Langoliers, and the posts get messed up in a huge way. Also, that 'orrible "phishing cure" that redirects to a warning page has SERIOUS bugs. It really messes up posts and group pages.

Paris, because MySpace is the pubic [sic] strumpet of the Internets (and we don't have a garbage can icon).
