You couldn’t have failed to notice that yesterday Facebook announced the ‘Like’ function will now share your ‘Likes’ which will include the story, thumbnail, headline and link on your profile wall. You will also be able to comment on the link. Plain and simple, this change is all about data collection and marketing analysis which I don’t object too, but it would be nice to know where my ‘likes’, ‘shares’, ‘status updates’, ‘app data’ and so on is going too. So rather than discuss data privacy (which is of course a hot topic for me), I thought I would do some research about the security issues surrounding the ‘like’, or is that ‘Share’ 🙂 function.
What is the Darknet? This is a closed (and in some cases it can be “open” to the public) private network of computers used for file sharing. You need to know where to look and use social engineering skills to open the doors.
Safe surfing folks!
