MySpace.com to bolster security measures
CEO says company to add technology to screen how site used
BOSTON - MySpace.com, the online virtual-community run by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., will soon add technology to screen how its 60 million members use the Web site to prevent crime, the company’s chief executive said on Thursday.
He discussed the enhanced security plan in an interview, several hours after federal authorities announced the arrests of two men charged with using MySpace to arrange illegal sexual encounters with minors.
MySpace chief executive Chris DeWolfe declined to discuss the arrests or say how specifically the new security technology will work. The company will give details in an announcement in the coming weeks, he said.
