Facebook removes accounts to prevent spread of cyber threats


Meta Platforms, which controls the world’s biggest social networking site Facebook, took action to remove accounts that violated its policies in an ef-fort to prevent the spread of cyber threats, its new report showed.

In its first quarterly Adversarial Threat Report, Meta analysts wrote about the risks of co-ordinated inau-thentic behaviour, online espionage, mass reporting and other emerging problems from some countries.

It is expanding the scope of its action to deal with an increasingly dangerous internet landscape and the use of social media networks by individuals and groups in pursuit of illicit activities. Meta’s public security reporting began more than four years ago.—TLTP
