Facebook Complaints Increase in Sri Lanka
More than 1,100 Facebook related incidents have been recorded in
Sri Lanka so far this year and they have almost doubled compared to the
previous year, according to Sri Lanka Computer Emergency Readiness Team
(SLCERT).

SLCERT, Media Spokesman Senior Security Engineer Roshan
Chandragupta yesterday told  that the number of Facebook related
incidents recorded for the whole of last year was only 1,200. SLCERT had
received 1,040 and 1,150 complaints regarding Facebook for the years 2011 and
2012 respectively. In 2011, it was 1,800.
Chandragupta said that over 80 percent of complaints were about
fake Facebook profiles while others were about accounts being hacked.

He said that necessary measures had been taken to suspend the
false Facebook accounts, based on the complaints received.
“Creating fake accounts and hacking are clear violations of
the Facebook usage terms. This could be directly reported via Facebook to
deactivate or remove the accounts,” Chandraguptha said, adding that in Sri
Lanka if a Facebook account was hacked it was a violation of Computer Crimes
Act of 2006.
