Privacy Peril: Facebook's Marketplace Flaw

The latest edition of the ISMG Security Report describes how a Facebook Marketplace glitch created serious privacy issues.

In this report, you'll hear (click on player beneath image to listen):

  • ISMG's Mathew Schwartz describe how a Facebook Marketplace vulnerability, which has since been patched, allowed thieves to know the exact physical location of high-value goods;
  • ISMG's Jeremy Kirk discuss the FBI's most recent fraud report and its countermeasures;
  • Everett Stern, the HSBC whistleblower who will be the keynoter at ISMG's upcoming Fraud and Breach Summit in Chicago, discuss how perceptions about whistleblowers are changing.

The ISMG Security Report appears on this and other ISMG websites on Fridays. Don't miss the April 12 and April 19 editions, which respectively discuss the latest Equifax post-breach report and a hackable children's GPS watch.
