A cyber-security expert who has worked with such agencies as the FBI and Scotland Yard is warning that hackers and cyber criminals are targeting social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin, the The Observer in London reports.

“It’s happening all over the world,” said the expert Mikko Hypponen, who refuses to use Facebook, the Observer reported.
