We have talked to you before about monitoring what your kids post on Facebook or check in location software like Foursquare to protect them from cyberstalking and child predators. Now we have news of a recent attempted kidnapping where police believe that the kid's social networking activities made him a target.
WBTV's cyber expert, Theresa Payton, talks to us about what happened and what we can learn from a narrowly avoided tragedy.
Eugene Kaspersky is a legend in the security field. His son Vanya, also known as "Ivan" is 20-years-old and was kidnapped on his way to work. The overall story is terrible but it has a happy ending.
Ivan is alive and home safe and sound. When police started investigating, they and his Dad, Eugene, believe that the kidnappers were tracking his son using social networking.
