The EU's 'Right To Be Forgotten': What Data Protections Are We Missing in the US? - Forbes

The EU's 'Right To Be Forgotten': What Data Protections Are We Missing in the US? - Forbes | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Speaking to the “do not track issue” regarding the data of social network profiles, Erin Egan, Facebook’s chief privacy officer, said she wasn’t sure that a “do not track” browser setting accurately reflected a user’s wish to not to be tracked online, particularly in cases where companies such as Facebook tracked users to enable the very feature that customizes the user experience on the popular social network. Egan added, “For Facebook, we have social plugins. We don’t use that data for an advertising purpose — we use it to personalize the data on those pages.

 

===> ” Egan maintains that until the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) sets an official standard, “it’s really hard for companies like us.” More browser platforms may push ahead with a standard of their own, implementing settings that will enable expanded user control to block cookies, such as Internet Explorer’s default do not track setting. <===

Mobile Apps Permission - Find out what Your Apps are doing [Infographic]

Mobile Apps Permission - Find out what Your Apps are doing [Infographic] | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Infographics on Case study at Mobile Android Apps Permission vulnerability, starting Apps integration at 2AM on Google Play Store with malware attack on tablet...

 

You might be wondering what this Title means. But it’s the fact of today. While many of us might not know this but this has become a good security point to talk on. Most of the time when we just download any kind of Apps from the Google Play or Android Market, it always prompt to give permission to access the device, and most people including us, actually don’t pay attention to it and simply go ahead to download the app.

 

However, this is just equal to a Bad idea of giving the entire access of your Phone contents to the app which could lead to possible data theft, spam, malware and what not! According to the Research done by us, found us a good evidence that an average Android app always asks for 124 different types of permissions. While we have also found one shocking fact that almost 33% of the App asks for more permissions than the actual required.

I've done some thinking about computer security and privacy over the past while.  It's been precipitated by conversations with Gust Mees.  It's good thinking. We're all in the same boat.  Just thin...
