I had no way of knowing if the person I was chatting with was a robot or an employee of the company.
How could I tell if my personal information was being properly safeguarded?
Facebook has just announced its video chat service, though it’s officially named Video Calling.
Presumably that gives it a bit more cachet than a mere “chat” service.
Please help this app, I had a lot of friends and people I actually cared for, it’s sad to see all the wrong things be regulated without any knowledge to people with actual investments in Cake.
Kidzworld is a safe kids website and this is a safe kids chat room!
This would be a relatively easy way to glean a lot of personal information which could then be used to communicate with the actual live chat system and exploit other weaknesses in the system's processes.
Social engineering would also come into play although I am not going to offer any tips to potential hackers.
And Skype is now owned by Microsoft, a company you’ve probably also already decided whether you trust or not. Microsoft is much bigger – and used to being much bigger – than Facebook. Many more of those many more developers are involved with security. Fun is good, but like many things, too much fun often gets in the way of security.
(If you are reading this on a Windows computer, an accurate first approximation is that you do.) Microsoft, despite being the archetype of closed-source software vendors, has consistently improved its attitude to security over the past 20 years, when it first wandered into the security field with a badge-engineered version of Central Point Anti-Virus. Perhaps, then, Facebook Microsoft-by-way-of-Skype will cause some of Redmond’s recognition of the long-term value of security to rub off on the social networking giant. You didn’t ask for help, so even if you think you need help now, consult a real-world friend you know and trust. Here’s some straight-talking advice on this issue: Paul Ducklin is a passionate security proselytiser. ) He lives and breathes computer security, and would be happy for you to do so, too.
