The Bad Kind Of Hacking...

I was bored and noticed that some of you peeps seem to use the login via Facebook function... So being bored I started to search.


Some of you have your security turned down way too low, or don't even use it! I post this to warn you that you should go and restrict what can be viewed on your profiles. I can see photos, posts, even dates of birth, and I'm not a hacker at all.


I've had my identity stolen and used in fraud before so I know how easy it can be.


End of my public service announcement :-D

    No sorcery, just science.

    Fair enough I guess. I've had some documents stolen from my mailbox and used to rack up a debt in my name. I never knew about it until I got a letter from the lender demanding payment. I had to take a day off to go in and sort everything out. Luckily it went away easily, it could have been a lot worse.


     


    The main concern is when people have their date of birth on display to everyone. That's gold to an online thief.
