MySpace Getting Tough on Sex Offenders

MySpace has offered to provide data on sex offenders to the authorities, according to these recent articles in The Denver Post and The New York Times.

MySpace has a web page devoted to security, and there's an independent blog, MyCrimeSpace, which tracks malicious activity on the site.

Social networking sites, in general, have been the focus of security concerns, not just on the privacy front but also for, at times, hosting malicious code.

The privacy issue revolves around posters who put personal information, or information that could be used to stalk someone, on their profile.
