Each year hundreds of events are organised to raise awareness about online safety issues. From cyber-bullying to social networking, each year Insafe aims to be at the forefront of emerging online issues and chooses a topic reflecting current concerns. This year, they ask us to look more closely at our “virtual lives” and discover how our real self lives the virtual experience.
This year, efforts will focus on virtual lives. Today young people spend a good part of their lives on activities ranging from online gaming to social networking. In doing so they face multiple challenges related to their privacy, reputation and health.
A few key facts to contemplate!

- In January 2010, 18 million accounts were registered on Second Life.
- Facebook reports more than 500 million active users.
- Users spend 700 billion minutes on Facebook each month.
- 13 million players in World of Warcraft, world’s largest MMORPG.
MMORPGs generated $1.5 billion in subscription revenues worldwide in 2008, forecast to reach $2.5 billion by 2012.
- Up to 250,000 players are simultaneously online on WoW.
- Transactions and sales of virtual goods in virtual worlds were estimated at $18 billion in 2009.
Some key messages
- Hiding behind your avatar, pseudo or profile page will not shield you.
- Your actions in your virtual life can impact on your real life.
- Monitor your playing activities: a balance between online and offline is important.
- Look for virtual worlds that don’t encourage consumerism.

Microsoft has issued a “critical” warning over a newly-discovered flaw in Windows. The bug affects every version of Microsoft’s Windows system. In a security advisory, the company warned of a loophole that could be used by malicious hackers to steal private information or hijack computers. The bug potentially affects every user of the Internet Explorer web browser – around 900 million people worldwide. Microsoft has issued a software patch to defend against attacks, and said it was working to develop a long-term fix.
Although the flaw is actually inside Windows itself, it only appears to affect the way that Internet Explorer handles some web pages and documents. Microsoft admitted that the problem meant users could easily be fooled into downloading malicious files by doing something as simple as clicking on a web link. Once the computer had been hijacked, hackers could use it to steal personal data or send users to fake websites, she added.
Although Microsoft said it had seen no evidence that the glitch had already been exploited by hackers, it warned that research had shown it was a serious threat and have issued a “fix it” security patch to protect users while they are developing a more permanent solution.
