Hackers use government jobs site to steal your data - Channel 4 News

Hackers use government jobs site to steal your data - Channel 4 News | digitalcuration | Scoop.it
A new government jobs website has been described as a "scammer's paradise" as a Channel 4 News investigation reveals major security flaws.

Hackers have obtained the personal details of scores of job applicants taken from the government's Universal Jobmatch website in a bid to highlight the site's vulnerability. The leaked data includes passwords, national insurance numbers and even scans of passports.

The Universal Jobmatch website was launched on 19 Nov and is accessed via the government portal gov.uk. It replaces the Jobcentre Plus website, which was exposed by Channel 4 News as being vulnerable to fraudsters in 2011. At the time the Department of Work and Pensions told us each advert would now be "checked for legal compliance" before going live.

The new site allows jobcentre staff to monitor the activity of jobseekers, checking what jobs have been applied for and suggesting new jobs. But there are no security checks performed on the people who post jobs, so our investigation was able to register as an employer in minutes.

Théories du complot : 5 façons d'apprendre aux élèves à faire le tri sur internet | digitalcuration | Scoop.it

Dans le contexte des attentats qui ont visé la France début janvier, une partie des élèves semblent séduits par les théories du complot. Quelles réponses l'Education nationale peut-elle apporter à ce problème ?

(...) Plus qu'un cours supplémentaire au milieu de programmes surchargés, la plupart des pédagogues proposent d'intégrer la pratique de l'internet dans toutes les disciplines. "Dans tous les cours, il est possible de sensibiliser les élèves à la recherche documentaire. On peut commencer dès le primaire, on va taper 'château fort' sur Google, et on regarde à quoi correspond chacun des sites qui sont proposés", détaille le pédagogue Philippe Meirieu.

How exaggerating on Facebook can make you paranoid

How exaggerating on Facebook can make you paranoid | digitalcuration | Scoop.it

Almost two-thirds of social-media users lie to make their lives seem more interesting, claims a new study. And experts say some suffer from 'digital amnesia' - forgetting real versions of events.

A previous Pencourage survey showed the most common issues people lied about were what they were doing at the time, such as pretending they were out when they were home alone, their relationships, holidays and success of their careers. Reasons for this included ‘fear of appearing boring’ and jealousy of others’ more exciting posts.


(...) This has disturbing implications, Dr Sherry says. ‘Many studies have demonstrated that even the simple act of imagining a childhood event increases a person’s confidence that the event happened to them in the past. ‘Researchers have demonstrated how readily false memories can form through the simple use of language. Even the phrasing of a narrative can shape how we later remember it.’

FBI provided Anonymous with targets, new leaks show | digitalcuration | Scoop.it
Leaked documents pertaining to the case against an American computer hacker currently serving a 10-year prison sentence have exposed discrepancies concerning the government's prosecution and raise further questions about the role of a federal informant.
Stéphane Koch's insight:

This "old" article is quite interesting to be read in the context of the FBI's claims on the presumed responsibility of the North Korean about the recent cyber attack on Sony. The article clearly demonstrate that "masked ball game" played by governments and intelligence agencies, and respectively that "the truth" is not their first priority... "cyber-attacks" are the new tools of the "dark diplomatic operations"... Among other things...

Un an de prison pour un Américain coupable de « revenge porn » via Facebook

Un an de prison pour un Américain coupable de « revenge porn » via Facebook | digitalcuration | Scoop.it
Un Américain de 36 ans vient d'être condamné par un tribunal californien à un an de prison, pour avoir publié une photo intime de son ex-petite amie sur la page Facebook de son employeur. Il s’agit d’une des premières décisions de justice prise sur le fondement d’une loi de 2013 sur le « revenge porn ».

 

Le mois dernier, un Britannique a écopé pour mémoire d’une peine de trois mois de prison suite à la diffusion de photos intimes d’une ex-petite amie, via l’application WhatsApp cette fois. En France, un homme de 35 ans a écopé en avril d’une peine d’un an de prison avec sursis pour des faits plus poussés : diffusion d'images sur différents sites Internet, avec adresse de la victime, invitation à consommer des actes sexuels...

So why would you not only look a gift horse in the mouth, but shoot it? Yet some businesses are doing just that. It’s become the latest brag, trailing closely behind that fantastically annoying “I don’t even have a TV, never mind watch the drivel!” Let's lay it out: deleting your Facebook page is foolish.
