A few Facebook users found a loophole within the post via email feature of groups. Luckily, instead of exploiting this, they let Facebook and The Next Web know. Hackers can tweak the “from” field to their victim’s email address to post text and photos as a member of a group. Facebook told The Next Web that while it knows about this issue, there’s not much it can do.
Facebook has confirmed that it banned the Operation Payback page created by a group of hackers to show support for WikiLeaks.
When is a hack not a hack? With all the brouhaha over privacy lately, no doubt Facebook users would be disturbed to know that their details might have surfaced on an internet file sharing site.
