My youngest is a fanatic. Hours long phone calls to friends exchanging all sorts of neo-news. But this is scary. Apparently, identity thieves are targeting NeoPets.com.
The gist of it is they lure the kids to click on a link with the promise of a “magic paintbrush” that will change the colors of their NeoPets. Once clicked, a virus is installed and begins to mine the personal information on the computer.
All parenting tips say to use a communal computer in a central area (good advice) but that set up also opens the adult information (credit cards, bank info, passwords) to the heackers.
