Researchers find leaky apps that put privacy at risk - News @ Northeastern

Researchers find leaky apps that put privacy at risk - News @ Northeastern | IT Management | Scoop.it

"A bug in Facebook’s advertising platform made it possible for potential hackers to uncover users’ phone numbers, according to a paper presented by Northeastern associate professor Alan Mislove at the Federal Trade Commission conference PrivacyCon last month. 

The Facebook advertising system is incredibly effective at targeting specific audiences, which is what has made the company so lucrative, Mislove said. But because anyone can become an advertiser, and there is very little transparency in what ads are being placed, the platform “could be used for nefarious purposes,” Mislove said. He demonstrated how in his own research."

What is the time – really?

What is the time – really? | IT Management | Scoop.it
Both in science and in society in general there is a rising demand for time accuracy. Extreme accuracy that is, and that involves sophisticated time measuring devices like hydrogen masers and caesium fountains. Some of us need extreme precision on a level where milliseconds are insufficient: we want to measure time in nanoseconds and lower. In the Clonets projects r&e networks collaborate to deliver high performance clock services.
