Unfriending Hurts

Unfriending Hurts | digitalcuration | Scoop.it

If you're a fan of periodically cleansing your Facebook friend list, a new study suggests you might want to think twice before you click that unfriend button: The negative effects of giving someone the axe online appear to extend into real life.

 

“People think social networks are just for fun,” Christopher Sibona, a doctoral student at the University of Colorado Denver Business School and the study's lead author, said in a Jan. 4 press release. “But in fact what you do on those sites can have real world consequences.”

 

As for what kinds of consequences, Sibona's research found that 40 percent of survey respondents said they would avoid a person who unfriended them on Facebook if they saw him or her in real life. Another 10 percent said they weren't sure what they'd do in such a situation, and 50 percent said they would not avoid the person.

 

Women were more likely to avoid those who had unfriended them, but the results didn't suggest why that might be the case.

 

Based on 582 responses collected through Twitter, the study showed that various factors influence how people handle being unfriended. For example, when the person who had unfriended someone vocalized that decision to others, it seemed to worsen the rejection experienced by the person on the receiving end and made that unfriended person more likely to steer clear of the former Facebook friend.

 

“Talking to someone is a public declaration that the friendship is over," Sibona said in the release.

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

Cyber Security & Hacking News – How to keep children safe on the internet

Cyber Security & Hacking News – How to keep children safe on the internet | digitalcuration | Scoop.it
Kids these days are digital natives. They’ve grown up with the internet and have no concept of what life was like without it. They’re completely at home with technology: using a mouse or touchscreen to navigate is as much a life skill as learning to read and write. 

In fact, children tend to learn to use a touchscreen way before they can read or write, using colours, images and symbols instead of words to navigate around apps and websites in order to get to a video or game they like. 

Whatever the age of your kids, it’s important to keep them safe when browsing websites, using social networking services such as Facebook, and chatting with friends using instant messaging programs. 

Although your children may know more about using a laptop, tablet and the internet than you do, it’s your responsibility to ensure they’re protected from the parts of the web that present a danger to them.

The dangers (see below) may sound bad, but the good news is that you can prevent most of them happening without too much time, effort or money. 

Common sense plays a bigger part than you might think. For a start, we’d recommend not allowing children to use a device – laptop, tablet or phone – in their own room. Asking them to use it in a communal area should discourage most inappropriate activities as it will be obvious what they’re up to even if you only glance in their direction. 

The most important thing to do is to talk to each child and explain (in a way appropriate to their age) the dangers that the internet could pose to them, and why they can’t use their devices in their room.

Also, encourage them to tell you whenever they see anything that makes them uncomfortable or upsets them, or simply isn’t what they expected. 

You can delete inappropriate websites from your browser’s history, and add the site’s address to a parental control filter list (we’ll come to this in a minute).

Also encourage them to tell you if they receive any threatening or frightening messages or emails – you can add the sender’s address to most email programs’ blocked list.

No boundaries: Exfiltration of personal data by session-replay scripts

No boundaries: Exfiltration of personal data by session-replay scripts | digitalcuration | Scoop.it
You may know that most websites have third-party analytics scripts that record which pages you visit and the searches you make. But lately, more and more sites use “session replay” scripts. These scripts record your keystrokes, mouse movements, and scrolling behavior, along with the entire contents of the pages you visit, and send them to third-party servers. Unlike typical analytics services that provide aggregate statistics, these scripts are intended for the recording and playback of individual browsing sessions, as if someone is looking over your shoulder.

The stated purpose of this data collection includes gathering insights into how users interact with websites and discovering broken or confusing pages. However the extent of data collected by these services far exceeds user expectations [1]; text typed into forms is collected before the user submits the form, and precise mouse movements are saved, all without any visual indication to the user. This data can’t reasonably be expected to be kept anonymous. In fact, some companies allow publishers to explicitly link recordings to a user’s real identity

New Vulnerability Exploits Antivirus Programs to Install Malware

New Vulnerability Exploits Antivirus Programs to Install Malware | digitalcuration | Scoop.it
It is common notion that antivirus software keeps our computers safe from all types of bugs and malware. However, it seems that cybercriminals are hell-bent on changing this belief by using these programs for fulfilling their malicious objectives. As per the findings of Kapsch’s security researcher Florian Bogner, hackers have learned to exploit the Restore from Quarantine feature, and a number of AV solutions have been affected. The flaw has been named AVGater. 

Bogner an Austrian security editor, states that once it is on a system, this vulnerability relocates malware from an AV quarantine folder and stores it to another sensitive location. It is rather surprising that all antivirus programs available nowadays are plagued with this flaw including Kaspersky, ZoneAlarm, Malwarebytes, Emsisoft, Trend Micro and Ikarus to name a few.

Rien à cacher - Le documentaire - Korben | digitalcuration | Scoop.it

Ce doc soulève la question de l'acceptation de la surveillance de masse par les gens. Les États et les entreprises tentent progressivement de faire entrer dans la normalité l'abandon de la vie privée, et quand on voit le nombre de personnes mal informées qui répètent en boucle "Je m'en fiche, je n'ai rien à cacher", j'ai tendance à croire qu'ils y arrivent très bien. 


C'est pour cela que ce genre de documentaire est important. Pour ouvrir cette petite porte mentale qui présentera le problème sous un angle différent de celui qu'on nous propose partout, tout le temps et que malheureusement certains reprennent à leur compte.

Facebook’s war on free will

Facebook’s war on free will | digitalcuration | Scoop.it


The precise source of Facebook’s power is algorithms. That’s a concept repeated dutifully in nearly every story about the tech giants, yet it remains fuzzy at best to users of those sites. From the moment of the algorithm’s invention, it was possible to see its power, its revolutionary potential. The algorithm was developed in order to automate thinking, to remove difficult decisions from the hands of humans, to settle contentious debates.

The essence of the algorithm is entirely uncomplicated. The textbooks compare them to recipes – a series of precise steps that can be followed mindlessly. This is different from equations, which have one correct result. Algorithms merely capture the process for solving a problem and say nothing about where those steps ultimately lead.

Banking Trojan Gains Ability to Steal Facebook, Twitter and Gmail Accounts

Banking Trojan Gains Ability to Steal Facebook, Twitter and Gmail Accounts | digitalcuration | Scoop.it


This Trojan Can Steal Your Facebook, Twitter and Gmail accounts


Security researchers have discovered a new variant of Terdot banking Trojan that steals social media and email accounts as well, along with bank account details.


However, according to the latest analysis, Terdot can target social media networks including Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, and YouTube, and email service providers including Google's Gmail, Microsoft's live.com, and Yahoo Mail. 


Interestingly, the malware avoids gathering data related to Russian largest social media platform VKontakte (vk.com), Bitdefender noted. This suggests Eastern European actors may be behind the new variant. 


The banking Trojan is mostly being distributed through websites compromised with the SunDown Exploit Kit, but researchers also observed it arriving in a malicious email with a fake PDF icon button.
If clicked, it executes obfuscated JavaScript code that downloads and runs the malware file. In order to evade detection, the Trojan uses a complex chain of droppers, injections, and downloaders that allow the download of Terdot in pieces.

What do Vegas hookers, Colombian government, and 30,000 other sites have in common? Crypto-jacking miners • The Register | digitalcuration | Scoop.it
Over the past few months there has been an alarming rise in the number of websites running code that silently joyrides computers and secretly makes them mine digital currency for miscreants. 

The latest count suggests more than 30,000 sites are quietly running JavaScript miners on people's PCs and handhelds – way more than previously thought. 

An analysis, published this month by infosec guru Troy Mursch, revealed that the vast majority of currency-mining software came from Coin Hive, the freely available JavaScript code developed to mine Monero. It appears the scripts were slipped into most, but not all, webpages covertly by hackers and other miscreants. In all, Mursch found 30,611 sites on the web running Coin Hive's JavaScript to effectively crypto-jack machines into digging up digital dosh for shady netizens.
