Facebook's security is a joke

    I ran across this in my news feeds last week.

    How I Hacked Facebook, and Found Someone's Backdoor Script | DEVCORE 戴夫寇爾

    Seems someone participating in Facebook's bug bounty program found that someone had been in before him and was collecting employee IDs and passwords.

    It gets better.

    Who hacked Facebook?

    Yeah. Instead of being grateful that someone found not only one, but several security holes you could drive a Mac truck through, Facebook turns around and threatens the individual who found 'em.

    It's bad enough Facebook tries everything in their power to subvert user privacy, but it's apparent that their security team doesn't take their own security seriously. And if you think about it, this impacts users as well.

    Somewhat off topic, but what are "Facebook Trackers" that I find on so many web sites/pages? What does Facebook learn from them.

    On Topic in the strict sense there is no such thing as security in terms of an entity/business protecting data and or privacy for the everyman users of the Internet.
