Internet Security Issues

The details of over 100 million Facebook users have been published online for people to download, compromising the privacy of the social network users. Kevin Pereira talks to Noah Shachtman from Wired to learn more about what happened and what this means for online data privacy as we know it. Has the internet, at last, eliminated all anonymity?

    I agree and disagree, I have nothing to hide and I know for a fact that my every move is being documented already. I think that the whole point with Facebook is that people should be more conscientious about using anything "Digital or not" that is shared with other people. In the case with Google and the Government I am a little concerned not in that I have something to hide but if it goes unchecked it could possible lead to only gaining internet access through some kind of Cloud only System. I understand how security measures and statistical study's work. However how far will they go?

    Damn, he is about as exciting and informative as a tree trunk....My concern would be the fact that the CIA can almost wiretap you without a court order, and when people do not have the full picture, you can get arrested for nothing when assumptions are made. Like Noah pointed out, he is going to Aruba, and so it "Dr. Evil" and somehow those are connected??? Maybe, maybe not. Sounds like a lot of tail chasing, and illegal wiretapping.

    That's why you allow only friends to see your personal info.
