Phishers target MySpace

I wish I had a catchy headline like the one the Associated Press pushed: MySpace Users Big Targets for ID Thieves – unfortunately I don’t really consider stealing someone’s MySpace account a form of ID theft.

Unless MySpace users are posting their credit card and banking information, their SSN, or other such details on their MySpace page, this is more of a hassle than a threat, and one that MySpace could easily warn users about. Then again, users post just about everything else, so maybe I’m way off base here.

At least MySpace users have strong passwords – let’s hope they keep it that way when they have to repeatedly change them.

UPDATE: Slashdot notes that social networking users have already ruined their privacy. I concur.
