Title: Facebook 'hosts' cyber-crime marketplaces

Abstract: Facebook has been host to "dozens" of busy marketplaces and exchanges used by cyber-thieves to buy and sell stolen goods, suggests a security firm. Researchers at Cisco found 74 groups on Facebook that openly traded stolen credit card numbers and bank account details. The groups had a regular membership of about 385,000 people, they found. Facebook said it had shut down the groups for breaking the social network's policies on financial fraud.
