Scammers are always trying to think of new ways to infect computers, and at least one hacker or group of hackers decided to go after children. Security experts are saying they have detected viruses on more than 60 websites with the words "game" or "arcade" in the title, showing the need to install antivirus software on every computer, especially those children use.

Security experts are cautioning the public to be on their guard against the expected rise in botnets targeted at smartphones in 2012.
