Facebook has filed a lawsuit on Friday against a Ukrainian national for allegedly scraping its website and selling the personal data of more than 178 million users on an underground cybercrime forum.
The tool is designed to automatically discover personal data in organizations’ Microsoft 365 environments.
A hacker has breached the Argentinian government’s IT network and stolen ID card details for the country’s entire population.
More than a dozen prominent cybersecurity experts criticized plans by Apple and the European Union to monitor people’s phones for illicit material.
WhatsApp is allowing users to encrypt their backed-up chats, making them unreadable without access to a password or 64-digit encryption key.
Legislators want a form of encryption that can be stripped away whenever the government wants access to communications. It means backdoor.
Unrelated to other recent problems Facebook has had, this particular batch of data was scraped from profiles, meaning it’s publicly available knowledge. That doesn’t stop it from being dangerous.
