Hackerul “Fum Micul” spune că a spart adresele vedetelor PRO TV pentru Mădălina Manole!


Fum Micul a postat pe pagina sa de Facebook fotografii personale ale vedetelor PROTV

„Micul Fum” este zgârcit în ceea ce priveşte informaţiile personale. Contactat pe profilul său de Facebook, “Fum Micul”, acolo unde a postat fotografii şi mesaje private ale vedetelor cărora le-ar fi spart mailurile, el a vorbit însă despre motivele pentru care a făcut acest gest.

Se pare că nu a ales întâmplător ziua de ieri pentru a publica aceste fotografii, imediat după comemorarea Mădălinei Manole. “Nu am cunoscut-o personal pe Mădălina, nu fac parte din cercul restrâns sau larg de prieteni ai ei, dar o apreciez ca şi artist şi ca şi om. Comemorând un an de la trecerea în nefiinţă a Mădălinei Manole, contrapun o vedetă autentică cu aceste vedete de carton”, spune el.

“Din punctul meu de vedere, ea s-a sinucis şi îi pare rău. Rugamintea ei, pe care sper să o văd materializându-se, e ca ex-soţul ei, Mircea, să se împace cu părinţii ei. Ar fi ca un semn de conciliere naţională în faţa durerii”, a adăugat el.

ProTv a anunţat că a depus deja o plângere şi că va acţiona în justiţie pe oricine va folosi datele private ale vedetelor postului.

Facebook and Microsoft battle child porn

Facebook and Microsoft have formally unveiled an alliance to ferret out child porn and those that share such images at the world’s leading online social network.

Facebook will use PhotoDNA technology developed by Microsoft and Dartmouth College computer science professor Hany Farid to search for matches to pictures in a National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) database.

“We think this is a game changer and we are thrilled to be a part of this partnership,” Facebook assistant general counsel Chris Sonderby said in broadcast streamed at the social network.

PhotoDNA has evaluated more than two billion digital pictures at Microsoft services, finding 1000 matches on SkyDrive and 1500 matches through Bing image indexing, according to Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit associate general counsel Bill Harmon.

“It is very efficient technology and will not slow down a network,” Farid said during the live-streamed presentation.

“It has scanned over two billion images without a single false positive.”

PhotoDNA will scan the hundreds of millions photos uploaded daily to Facebook, blocking pictures recognised as child porn and, hopefully, leading police to the sources, according to Sonderby.

If caches of such imagery are seized, new pictures will be “fingerprinted” and made part of the PhotoDNA net, according to NCMEC chief executive Ernie Allen.

“This is a problem that is global in nature,” Allen said. “We think with Facebook we will be able to identify perpetrators preying on kids all over the world.”

The California-based social networking service is reported to have more than 600 million members around the planet.

“Facebook is becoming a model for the entire internet industry,” Allen said, who expressed hope that pressure would be put on other online services to employ the child-porn-detecting technology.

Google and Facebook rivalry takes centerstage


The relationship between the two Internet icons has become increasingly confrontational, and the battle will likely intensify on Monday when Facebook is expected to introduce a revamped version of its messaging technology that could pose a challenge to Google’s Gmail.

Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg and Google Chief Eric Schmidt will each take the stage, along with dozens of other Internet industry heavyweights, during the 3-day Web 2.0 conference that kicks off Monday.

With reports swirling that Yahoo Inc is being eyed for a takeover by private equity firms, possibly in coordination with AOL Inc or News Corp. Yahoo Inc CEO Carol Bartz’s talk at the conference on Tuesday will also be closely watched.

And investors hoping for an eventual wave of initial public offerings by a new generation of fast-growing Web start-ups will keep an eye on appearances by executives from Twitter, Zynga and LinkedIn.

But all eyes will be on Zuckerberg and Schmidt, and the pitched struggle for Web surfers’ time online, advertising dollars, and increasingly costly Silicon Valley talent.

Investors are waiting for details of Google’s social networking strategy. Google has acquired several small social networking companies in recent months and Schmidt has said the company would begin to add social “layers” to its existing products in the fall.

CLASH OF WEB TITANS

Google’s Internet search engine and Facebook’s social networking service have grown into billion-dollar businesses, amassing vast numbers of users. Now, the two are increasingly on a collision course.

“Once you have that many (users), you want to try to be all things to all people in some sense …, and I think everything falls out of that,” said a person familiar with Facebook’s thinking.

“They have similar aspirations and goals,” the person said of Google.

The latest flashpoint appears to be email, with Facebook due to unveil “across the board” changes to its messaging service on Monday, according to the source.

Blog TechCrunch reported on Friday that Facebook will unveil a full-fledged Web email product, along with “@facebook.com” email addresses for users, and noted that the product is referred to within Facebook as a “Gmail-killer.”

A Facebook spokesman declined to comment.

Last week, Google began blocking a Facebook feature that allows users to automatically import Gmail contact data into the social networking service. Google accused Facebook of siphoning up Google data without allowing for the automatic import and export of Facebook users’ information.

They are also increasingly vying for engineering talent in Silicon Valley. This week, Google internally announced plans to boost salaries by 10 percent, according to media reports, in a move viewed as an effort to staunch an exodus of engineers and managers to Facebook.

But the social network itself lost a star engineer on Friday, when Paul Buchheit said he was leaving Facebook to join Y Combinator, a firm that invests in and provides services for technology start-ups.

Buchheit, who worked at Google from 1999 to 2006, is best known as the creator of Google’s Gmail. But he would not discuss any Facebook product plans when reached on the phone on Friday.

When reports of Facebook building an email product first surfaced in February, Buchheit said he was not working on anything related to email at Facebook and that he didn’t plan to.

Facebook îşi lansează propriul serviciu de e-mail, „ucigaşul de Gmail”


Adresele de e-mail “@facebook”, la care pot apela 500 de milioane de utilizatori, vor fi doar un pas înaintea apariţiei unui motor de căutare bazat pe “preferinţele grupului de prieteni”, care ar putea detrona Google.

“Ucigaşul de Gmail”, un nou serviciu de e-mail oferit de Facebook, ar urma să ia naştere chiar de astăzi, deşi, până în ultimele clipe, conducerea companiei a negat zvonurile. Adresele de e-mail “@facebook”, care se aşteaptă să fie create de o bună parte din cei 500 de milioane de utilizatori ai popularei reţelei sociale, aruncă mănuşa gigantului Google, care s-ar putea trezi, foarte curând, şi cu un motor de căutare rival.
Combinat cu serviciile de gestionare a fotografiilor şi de anunţare a diferitelor evenimente (unele cu implicaţii politice – precum momente din campaniile electorale din SUA, din 2008 şi 2010), serviciul de poştă electronică al Facebook ar deveni “un adversar total al Gmail”, consideră The Guardian. Încă din februarie 2010, o strategie de detronare a supremaţiei Google circulă în sediul central al Facebook (din Palo Alto, California) sub numele de cod “Project Titan”, respectiv denumirea populară de “Gmail killer”. Un serviciu de e-mail ar fi doar un pas din încercarea Facebook de a pătrunde pe piaţa de 24 miliarde USD anual a reclamelor care sar în ochii internauţilor când fac căutări online.

Facebook Update – Profile Boxes No More


As you know, the folks at Facebook constantly optimize and update the site to enhance the user experience. We like some of the changes they make, and we don’t like others. Today they’re making a change that we’re not too excited about, but I’m sure they have good reasons. Starting today (or any minute now), Facebook will remove the profile boxes of all applications. So if you have the NetworkedBlogs profile box on your profile, then it will soon be gone. Sorry.

So how do you show my blog on my profile now? The app tab is now the official way. You can add it from your Facebook profile as shown in the image below.

Facebook page launched in support of Israeli soldier who posed with Palestinian detainees


A new Facebook page appeared in support of the Israeli soldier who posted pictures of herself smiling in front of bound and blindfolded Palestinian prisoners.

Contributors to the new page- “We’re all with Eden Aberjil”- posted their own, similar images posing with Palestinian prisoners, together with messages of support for Ms Aberjil. One person even sent a photograph which appeared in Israeli newspapers of smiling policemen with a notorious serial rapist who was captured after escaping from prison.

The various messages of support described Ms Aberjil as an honest soldier who has become the victim of an army witch hunt after military authorities decided to strip her of her military rank and not call her up for reserve duty.

Meanwhile an Israeli group advocating an end to the occupation in the West Bank has also posted new pictures on Facebook of soldiers posing with Palestinian detainees to prove how widespread the phenomenon is.

Breaking the Silence, an organisation that collects testimonies from soldiers serving in Palestinian areas, uploaded new images including a group of soldiers posing next to a seriously wounded Palestinian lying on the floor and a picture of a soldier pointing a rifle at a prisoner stripped to his underwear, The organisation said it uploaded the images in an effort to counter the claims by Israeli military officials on Tuesday who condemned the pictures posted by the woman soldier, but claimed her actions were those of a lone soldier and did not represent the norm.

Another Israeli human rights group, Machsom Watch, which monitors the behavior of soldiers at West Bank checkpoints, linked the latest set of photographs to the immorality of 43 years of military occupation.

The fact that so many soldiers decide to upload photographs onto Facebook and similar sites has created a headache for the Israeli military censor.

Army bases have posters reading “Not everyone is your friend on Facebook”.

Earlier this year an operation in the West Bank was called off at the last minute when one of the soldiers revealed operational details on a social networking site.

100 Million Facebook Users Learn True Meaning of Going Public


Facebook users were hit with another frightening reminder on Thursday that not everyone online is their friend, as over 100 million personal profiles and details from the service were scraped from Facebook’s pages and published on the Web.

But Facebook wasn’t hacked. Far from it. And if users had personal details exposed, they have no one but themselves to blame.

A program written by Ron Bowes, a security consultant at Skull Security, scanned all the listings in Facebook’s open-access directory and then compiled a text file that lists the information he uncovered. That data potentially exposes some Facebook users’ birthdays, addresses, phone numbers and more — but only because they chose not to keep those details private.

“All I’ve done is compile public information into a nice format for statistical analysis,”. He explained that he had simply accessed the same information that’s available to search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo — or the countless white-pages services available online.

But the stunt should make those 100 million Facebook users reconsider what personal information they make available online.

Going public with your birthday and address exposes you to the very real threat of identity theft and fraud — not to mention stalking and other unwelcome advances. Hackers typically troll for such information to open credit cards under aliases, or they use the names they find in other online scams.

And it’s hardly unreasonable to presume that some of the thousands of people who have downloaded Bowes’ file since it hit the Internet have criminal intentions.

Facebook is putting a straight face on the story. Company spokesman Andrew Noyes told FoxNews.com that the “information that people have agreed to make public was collected by a single researcher … no private data is available or has been compromised.”

As Facebook leaves it up to its users to decide how much personal information they want to reveal to the public, people who want to keep some things to themselves are encouraged to take a few specific steps.

To be removed from the open access directory that Bowes scanned, users should select “Privacy Settings” under the “Account” heading on the Facebook screen, then edit the “Public Search” option to uncheck the “Enable public search” box.

Then they should go back to the privacy settings and select “Custom” to specify what information (photos, comments, and so on) they want to share, and with whom.

If your profile was set to be searchable by everyone, chances are you’re in Bowes file, and there’s nothing you can do about that now.

Facebook users should also be aware that after they have changed their privacy settings, their old profile pages may still be publicly available because they are often stored (or cached) by search engines.
