Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday at the company's F8 developer conference acknowledged that 2018 has been an "intense year" for the company. And many would agree with that statement, including the faithful Facebook users who would either accept that data scandal is part of social media standards or pretend that Cambridge Analytica which is now shutting down has willingly given up the credentials to seamlessly sway their political choices in the nearest future. Facebook unveiled several new features set to be included in its va...
Snapchat’s latest feature ‘Snap Map’ allows users to track other people’s location in real time, raising privacy and security concerns for parents and child safety advocates. Snap Map, plots users and their snaps onto a map so two users following each other can see where they are and what they are doing. The idea is that Snapchatters can stay up to date with their friend’s lives, and use the Snap Map feature to find one another. “We’ve built a whole new way to explore the world! See what’s happening, find your friends, and get inspi...

Now they have launched the Blackphone 2, its successor, which operates almost in a same but with updated and improved specifications.

Google Tone is most likely not what you think. It has zero to do with music, for one, or for doling out in any way to which we’re used to. Okay, it’s pretty much based on sound, but not sound that we as being can hear. There are no locations, digital handshakes, or encryption keys involved here. Ironically, network security is amusingly naked, on the other hand, blocking out wire tappers is as easy as pie. There are no locations, computerized handshakes, or encryption keys. Google Tone is a Chrome browser extension that is confined...
On July 5, 2015 an anti-surveillance crusader blazoned a ginormous, 400 gigabyte chunk on Bit Torrent of internal documents from the mysterious Italian surveillance firm Hacking Team on the company’s official Twitter feed. Five days after suffering the massive attack, the security firm is still scrimmaging to cap the damage and figure out how exactly the perpetrators racked up the data breach. The anonymous hacker hijacked HT’s official Twitter account and continued to post screenshots of email communications, client lists – includ...
Ransomware can be a pain in the butt. The deceitful vex of a program accuses you of cheese pizza (=child pornography), pedophilia, zoophilia or sending out bulk spam. It is thought to infiltrate your computer when you click on a legitimate-looking attachment or read any junk email or through existing malware creeping around in your hard drive, and once it’s let loose, it straightaway encrypts all your files, and locks you out until you pay an astronomical sum in ransom. A dark web hacker has embraced the crowdsourced approach to ge...
About a year ago, Facebook noticed a massive, one-of-a-kind botnet-powered malware slinging campaign that used various social networking services to push malicious software onto the machines of as many users as possible. The flagship social networking site couldn’t stop it then, without help from Pinterest, Tumblr and others. The botnet-powered malware used jagged web properties to host content or propagate or simply to obscure the nature of the attack. Fast forward a year, andFacebook has partnered with Bitly, Dropbox, Pinteres...
For more than a decade, Reddit, the hugely successful social content aggregation site, has been known for its freewheeling slant on letting its users govern themselves. It has resulted in a spate of user-generated content, of all kinds, attracting nearly 160 million regular users to the site. Now, Reddit is upping its privacy game in a bid to crack down on sexual content following the posting of private-nude photos of many celebrities on the site last year. The company announced that it is changing its privacy policy that bans user...
If you’re one of those tin-foil-hat-wearing theorists desperately hoping for the preservation of Internet security, then you will sooner or later have to compromise with your ideals and dreams. The future of internet privacy looks shady and policymakers and technology pioneers have a huge task to accomplish, once they’re likely to bungle. It happens to be one of the larger discoveries of blanketing research done by more than 2,500 researchers by Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project. "The Future of Privacy" is ...
