By  |  Published 

August 5, 2009 – Popular slideshow presentation service, SlideShare is the most recent big name social media resources to get attacked by virus writers who want to spread malware links.

According to a new report in ReadWriteWeb, security firm ESET are credited with discovering the malware in fake slide decks. Similar malware tactics have been discovered on TwitterFacebook, email and even instant messaging.

The idea behind attacking Slideshare was to trick unsuspecting Internet users into clicking on a slide deck with a link to a malware website. Luckily these issues were caught early on, but it isn’t likely that the malware attacks will stop here.

SlideShare allows people to upload slide show presentations to the Internet to use at conferences, web meetings, blogs, and other occasions where you would hypothetically want or need to share a slide show presentation with other people without having to deal with discs, flash drives, and other set-up issues.
