Three days have passed since Facebook reported that hackers have gained access tokens for 50 million user accounts that are considered to be the largest data breaches in history. What we have learned since then and what not
One violation may have affected other third party services using the Facebook Connect identity platform. Some large Internet services rely heavily on Facebook login, including Spotify, Airbnb, and Tinder. Anyone with full access to your account would have been able to log in to that service as well. In particular, none of our Facebook Connect customers are still investigating, so we have not commented on the impact of the violation on our own services. Tinder was the exception, saying that Facebook was calling to share limited information and share more.
The third party developer situation has begun a second debate on the wisdom of using Facebook login. In pro side Facebook login provides enhanced security measures such as "risk-based login", which allows the user to provide additional information if they suspect the password was stolen. On the contrary Facebook's predecessor created something similar to a single point of failure for online security.
Second, the legal consequences of the violation are becoming apparent. A class action lawsuit was filed at an alarming rate. While Facebook appears to have disclosed the violation within 72 hours required by the General Data Protection Regulation, the European Union's Privacy Watchdog (Facebook) can still penalize Facebook up to $ 1.63 billion Schechner reported in the Wall Street Journal . Separately, the Irish Data Protection Commission said 10 percent (19,459,007) of the victims of the European Union were living. Le Monde says less than 5 million.)
This type of violation is precisely designed to protect the GDPR. Russell Brandom reports:
No one has indicted Facebook for error, but the basic facts of this case have yet to be revealed. Already on Facebook with hostile lawmakers, many personal supervisors will want to test their luck. Because the law is so fresh, nobody knows how such an event will develop. But Facebook is already preparing to be a struggle for their lives.
New violations are related to previous GDPR struggles, generally policy decisions and service conditions. Although the lawsuit was filed by a third party, but not much progress has been made, Facebook and Google have already experienced a fire that has a Terms of Service that violates the Code. Scandals, such as Cambridge Analytica, present another challenge to avoid the most legal definition of violation, with obvious violations of user privacy being at the discretion of the user. However, this recent violation is much simpler. Facebook should not give these hackers access to your account. It's hard to read fallout to anything other than the collapse of Facebook security, because data sharing projects or APIs should not go wrong. The problem is how long will Facebook be punished.
On the third, a Facebook executive repeated that "this attack was the result of a sophisticated attack". Advertising Week Carolyn Everson, a world-renowned marketing executive, called an unknown attacker an "odorless and gravity-intruder" and Facebook was able to detect "only once after taking certain actions." (Everson also sent me one of those days.) Early this year I asked about the poignant departure of the founders of WhatsApp, and she said, "I want to hear more about their charitable activities."
Finally, due to this violation, Facebook has gained a new opportunity to evaluate its trust in Facebook. At a press conference Friday, two reporters asked Mark Zuckerberg why people should continue to trust the platform with his data. He distorted the question, as Will Oremus said:
"This is a serious problem, and we focus on why we have applied the patch to the vulnerability and additional security measures for it." Perceived not enough, he hesitates and says, "Security is an arms race, and we are improving our defense." Facebook says, "There are a lot of talented people working in this area. "He added. "This will be a continued effort and we will have to keep focusing on it over time."
On Monday we waited until the shoe was no longer damaged. But the truth is that we did not learn much on the weekend. The best explanation for this is that the GDPR should disclose the violation to Facebook as the investigation proceeds.

Sundar Pichai's visit to Washington looks like this: Tony Romm reports. But he agreed to testify at the House on "prejudices" about the Conservative Party.

"We would have known much more than the rest," he said, thinking of the hearing room. "To be honest, we do not trust that the press will no longer tell the truth."
India wants WhatsApp to break encryption and track inflammatory messages. Should we?
There have been many good discussions recently about what violence from WhatsApp is a technical or social issue. Rohan Venkataramakrishnan has a wonderful vision of attempting to fetch fake news through metadata analysis of a suggestion from a WeChat employee that brings back memories of a spokesman, WhatsApp, who has not spoken.
"Not surprisingly, former WeChat employees will support monitoring of their personal messaging applications," the spokesman said. "We do not strongly agree with their approach as seriously weakening people's privacy," he said. The spokesperson said that it was wrong to send a message that "there are some inaccuracies, most striking is that we do not keep all records" and that WhatsApp reads and saves the metadata part of every message sent from the platform. is. "
Gupta does not want to violate encryption, and he was a supporter of Apple when he refused to give up data on the iPhone locked by a US investigator in 2016, But as people dying, companies like WhatsApp found that there was a risk that they would not take any action because they were excuses to break into the government.
