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.

E-reputation: how one's online life can interfere with one's offline life

E-reputation: how one's online life can interfere with one's offline life | digitalcuration | Scoop.it
GBNews attended a conference on e-reputation, or how one’s “online life” can interfere and cause damage to his or her “offline life”. 

For some years now, we have witnessed important digital and societal transformations. The separation between private and public has become a blurred line. As Stéphane Koch underlines, a social network is a human creation. Unlike many, Koch sees the internet as part of real life and not something purely virtual. 

For him, the internet is just a tool used to connect people. But like all tools, we need to know how to properly use it, so that we do not get hurt. At the same time, because of the technological progress and the era of globalization we live in, more and more people seem to be losing control over their personal data. According to Koch, we are facing a true dematerialization of data. “Bye Bye files and archives department, Hello Clouds!” we could say. These changes can have an important impact on our lives, both on and offline

Alain Marleix : 
Considérant qu’il s’agit d’un évènement notable et reposant sur une source fiable, Langladure écrit un court paragraphe sur ce sujet dans l’article sur Alain Marleix. Descendons jusqu’à la version du 13 février 2009 et comparons-la à la version suivante, celle du 9 mars 2009 : On le voit, le passage en question a été simplement effacé. On laisse donc une trace quand on contribue anonymement, ce dont l’Élysée n’était pas au courant en 2009. Un dialogue sur son point de vue commence alors sur ce désaccord. 

Le selfie du macaque : 
Ceci est une photo d’un macaque des îles Célèbes… une photo un peu particulière puisque c’est un selfie. S’engage en parallèle un débat entre contributeurs et contributrices de Commons sur le détenteur du copyright. 

Je suis Philip Roth : 
L’article Wikipédia sur le roman (en anglais) mentionne cette référence. Il est de nouveau effacé avec le même argument puis de nouveau rétabli. De fait, la page de discussion de l’article possède des dizaines de contributions à ce débat tout au long de l’automne 2012. 

Wikipédia Zéro : 
Wikipedia Zero est un projet qui consiste en une négociation avec les opérateurs de téléphone mobile africains pour rendre l’accès à Wikipedia (et Wikimedia Commons) gratuit dans les forfaits données des téléphones. Wikimedia Commons (la base de données de fichiers multimédias sous licence libre qui permet le versement de photos dans Wikipédia) est utilisé par des Angolais pour y uploader des tas des choses, y compris des films, photos, musiques piratés.

How Long Should Your Videos Be? Ideal Lengths for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube

How Long Should Your Videos Be? Ideal Lengths for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube | digitalcuration | Scoop.it

Video marketers know we lack patience. So they're starting to tailor content for our dwindling attention spans. In fact, 56% of all videos published in the last year are less than 2 minutes long.


But marketers must innovate further because users expect different video lengths on different platforms. Odds are, they're more willing to watch a 2 minute long video on YouTube than on Twitter.


If you don't customize video length for each platform, then you're not fully catering to your audience. Sooner or later, the attention they give to your brand will wither away.


That's why we decided to create this handy, bookmarkable infographic about the optimal video length for the most popular video channels. To help you better engage your audience on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, we extracted insights from HubSpot's own social and YouTube data, and combined it with existing research in the area. ...

Ransomware attack puts KQED in low-tech mode

Ransomware attack puts KQED in low-tech mode | digitalcuration | Scoop.it

The journalists at San Francisco’s public TV and radio station, KQED, have been stuck in a time warp. 


 All Internet-connected devices, tools and machinery have been cut off in an attempt to isolate and contain a ransomware attack that infected the station’s computers June 15.  


Though the stations’ broadcasts have been largely uninterrupted — minus a half-day loss of the online stream on the first day of the attack — KQED journalists said every day has brought new challenges and revealed the immeasurable ways the station, like many businesses today, has become dependent on Internet-connected devices. 


If KQED, an organization that had up-to-date security systems and an awareness cultivated by routinely producing news stories about cyberattacks, can fall victim to such an attack, most other companies can, too.
