Barracuda Networks Turns 'Follows' And 'Likes' Into Meals For Children In Need

Goal is to help provide 10,000 meals for hungry children this holiday season

Campbell, Calif. (November 30, 2011) - In an effort to combat world hunger, Barracuda Networks is challenging the world to help provide 10,000 meals for hungry children this holiday season. From November 30 until December 31, Barracuda Networks' new one-for-one campaign-outlined at www.barracuda.com/clicksformeals-offers three free, simple ways everyone can help donate meals to starving children around the world.

Barracuda Networks will provide one meal for each of the following:

Install Profile Protector for Facebook and Twitter. Profile Protector, available at www.profileprotector.com, is a free tool that analyzes and blocks malicious activity on Facebook and Twitter.

Follow @barracudalabs on Twitter. Barracuda Labs is the threat research team who created Profile Protector and reports at www.barracudalabs.com.

"Like" Barracuda Networks on Facebook.

"We spend a lot of time analyzing how attackers use social networks for bad-stealing identities, creating fake profiles, spreading malware and so forth," said Dr. Paul Judge, chief research officer of Barracuda Networks. "We want to use the social networks to do some good. What better way to do that than to use the power and ease of Facebook and Twitter to raise awareness and money to fight hunger."

Barracuda Networks will work with the United Nations World Food Programme to fulfill the meal donation as they continue to fight hunger worldwide. Additional information-including a one-minute video-about the campaign is available at www.barracuda.com/clicksformeals.

"Attackers have proven time and again the enormous opportunity social networks create for malicious activity online," continued Judge. "This initiative is a small token and acknowledgement of our continued fight to keep social networks safe and make an impact on thousands of children's lives around the world."
