A Canadian computer technician who goes by Byron Ng seems to have a gift for hacking MySpace and Facebook and has raided a few celebrity websites.
Apparently, Byron discovered that Yahoo’s integration with MySpace makes it easy to view photos for any profile, even if it’s set to private. So he did so and found private photos by the like of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan and posted them online for the rest of the world to see.
And it’s all thanks to “data portability,” a technology movement that allows you to view any profile you want on MySpace by signing into yahoomail, where you can download a beta myspace widget and see any profile based on the profile number, regardless of whether or not the profile is hidden.
Oh, Byron is the same dude that made headlines when he found a way to hack into Facebook and scored photos of Mark Zuckerberg and his girlfriend. My hero.
