Teens just love using social networks for everything from [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story220006.html"]posting naked photos online[/URL] to [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story218938.html"]wasting time during class at school[/URL]. We also know that [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story219438.html"]parents have little idea what teens get up to online[/URL] but, it would appear, the teen online love affair has not gone unnoticed by young hackers who are actively targetting their fellow teenagers. Researchers at the Imperva Application Defense Center have uncovered a new hack attack which specifically targets teens using the popular Habbo Hotel virtual world come social networking site.
