The amount of malicious activity on social networking sites has been dramatically increasing each year as cybercriminals identify new ways to infect users.

By working with LinkedIn, Kaspersky Lab will be at the forefront to both educate and equip their users with the most secure internet security solutions, ” said Steve Orenberg, President of Kaspersky Lab North America.
