enter or type your login credentials in "links" that you clicked from anyone. If you've receive any links for myspace or any sites and prompted you to enter your credentials, do not login. What you should do is type the URL in the address bar of the site and login to your account then view the page/link only after you've login using your URL instead of their link/URL.
It is very likely to submit your credentials... if the link to view anyone's profile in any social networking site/service is fake/fraud/phished.
To avoid hacking of your accounts, again... do not login using their links if you are prompted to do so.
I am seeking someone who might tell me the following. Is it likely that anyone contacting me on an instant messenger like myspace or msn to obtain my login password without me clicking on a link they send? The reason I ask is I have an old g/f who seems to always wish to know about personal info. What seems strange to me though is since she has learned that I do not talk about such as I see it as none of her business, yet she keeps me online for periods of time without actually saying anything. I refuse to click links or accept any transfer as I am suspicious of past behavior. So without doing this, could she obtain my password say to myspace? I do have zonealarm and it is set to the highest level both for the internet and trusted areas.
Thank you for your time as I know it is valuable.
