Facebook Privacy Settings dipersoalkan


Facebook Privacy Settings dipersoalkan

Hati-hati mencantumkan data diri anda di Internet

 memang sangat berbahaya jika tidak hati-hati. Privacy setting pada akun-akun sosial media memang bisa diatur ulang oleh pemilik media-nya. Memang bagaimanapun karena kita hanya mendompleng pada fasilitas yang diciptakan oleh orang lain atau perusahaan. Kehati-hatian dan kontrol diri ada pada diri kita sendiri. Hal penting seperti keamanan dan bagaimana kita mencantumkan data diri pribadi memang menjadi concern banyak pihak karena dengan hal itu bisa membuka banyak hal yang kadang user sendiri tidak menyadarinya.

Mungkin kita tidak merasa terperdaya atau dimanfaatkan oleh media sosial online seperti Facebook, Google +, Friendster, DropBox dan sebagainya dimana kita bisa meletakkan data-data dan dokumen pribadi. Pasti ada yang mengawasi dan kadang menggunakannya tanpa sepengetahuan kita. Bukan Paranoid karena memang apalah arti data diri saya sendiri. Namun ketika data itu berjumlah ribuan dan jutaan, pasti banyak yang ingin memanfaatkannya, alasan apalagi selain data dan kepentingan modal? Marketing, tentu masih dalam kategori itu bukan?

Facebook terancam karena Privacy

Serombongan aktifis Anonymous yang kadang disebut 'hacktivist', yang sudah pernah 'katanya' menghack  , the , kemungkinan juga Anders Breivik, dan banyak lagi. Bersumpah akan menjebol Facebook pada 5 November 2011, dengan alasan privacy content dan sebagainya. Panjang seperti naskah yang ditrankrip oleh seperti ini:

DATE: November 5, 2011.


Twitter : 


Attention citizens of the world,

We wish to get your attention, hoping you heed the warnings as follows:
Your medium of communication you all so dearly adore will be destroyed. If you are a willing hacktivist or a guy who just wants to protect the freedom of information then join the cause and kill facebook for the sake of your own privacy.

Facebook has been selling information to government agencies and giving clandestine access to information security firms so that they can spy on people from all around the world. Some of these so-called whitehat infosec firms are working for authoritarian governments, such as those of Egypt and Syria.

Everything you do on Facebook stays on Facebook regardless of your "privacy" settings, and deleting your account is impossible, even if you "delete" your account, all your personal info stays on Facebook and can be recovered at any time. Changing the privacy settings to make your Facebook account more "private" is also a delusion. Facebook knows more about you than your family. 

You cannot hide from the reality in which you, the people of the internet, live in. Facebook is the opposite of the Antisec cause. You are not safe from them nor from any government. One day you will look back on this and realise what we have done here is right, you will thank the rulers of the internet, we are not harming you but saving you.

The riots are underway. It is not a battle over the future of privacy and publicity. It is a battle for choice and informed consent. It's unfolding because people are being raped, tickled, molested, and confused into doing things where they don't understand the consequences. Facebook keeps saying that it gives users choices, but that is completely false. It gives users the illusion of and hides the details away from them "for their own good" while they then make millions off of you. When a service is "free," it really means they're making money off of you and your information.

Think for a while and prepare for a day that will go down in history. November 5 2011, . Engaged.

This is our world now. We exist without nationality, without religious bias. We have the right to not be surveilled, not be stalked, and not be used for profit. We have the right to not live as slaves.

We are anonymous
We are legion
We do not forgive
We do not forget
Expect us

Ancaman dari Lulz Security

Jelas ini tidak ada hubungannya dengan UK Riots yang cukup mengesankan meski sudah lama Lulz Security memberikan pernyataan sebagaimana di tulis di , full teks ada di:

Dear Internets,
This is Lulz Security, better known as those evil bastards from twitter. We just hit 1000 tweets, and as such we thought it best to have a little chit-chat with our friends (and foes).
For the past month and a bit, we've been causing mayhem and chaos throughout the Internet, attacking several targets including PBS, Sony, Fox, porn websites, FBI, CIA, the U.S. government, Sony some more, online gaming servers (by request of callers, not by our own choice), Sony again, and of course our good friend Sony.
While we've gained many, many supporters, we do have a mass of enemies, albeit mainly gamers. The main anti-LulzSec argument suggests that we're going to bring down moreInternet laws by continuing our public shenanigans, and that our actions are causing clowns with pens to write new rules for you. But what if we just hadn't released anything? What if we were silent? That would mean we would be secretly inside FBI affiliates right now, inside PBS, inside Sony... watching... abusing...
Do you think every hacker announces everything they've hacked? We certainly haven't, and we're damn sure others are playing the silent game. Do you feel safe with your Facebook accounts, your Google Mail accounts, your Skype accounts? What makes you think a hacker isn't silently sitting inside all of these right now, sniping out individual people, or perhaps selling them off? You are a peon to these people. A toy. A string of characters with a value.
This is what you should be fearful of, not us releasing things publicly, but the fact that someone hasn't released something publicly. We're sitting on 200,000 Brink users right now that we never gave out. It might make you feel safe knowing we told you, so that Brink users may change their passwords. What if we hadn't told you? No one would be aware of this theft, and we'd have a fresh 200,000 peons to abuse, completely unaware of a breach.
Yes, yes, there's always the argument that releasing everything in full is just as evil, what with accounts being stolen and abused, but welcome to 2011. This is the lulz lizard era, where we do things just because we find it entertaining. Watching someone's Facebook picture turn into a penis and seeing their sister's shocked response is priceless. Receiving angry emails from the man you just sent 10 dildos to because he can't secure his Amazon password is priceless. You find it funny to watch havoc unfold, and we find it funny to cause it. We release personal data so that equally evil people can entertain us with what they do with it.
Most of you reading this love the idea of wrecking someone else's online experience anonymously. It's appealing and unique, there are no two account hijackings that are the same, no two suddenly enraged girlfriends with the same expression when you admit to killing prostitutes from her boyfriend's recently stolen MSN account, and there's certainly no limit to the lulz lizardry that we all partake in on some level.
And that's all there is to it, that's what appeals to our Internet generation. We're attracted to fast-changing scenarios, we can't stand repetitiveness, and we want our shot of entertainment or we just go and browse something else, like an unimpressed zombie. Nyan-nyan-nyan-nyan-nyan-nyan-nyan-nyan, anyway...
Nobody is truly causing the Internet to slip one way or the other, it's an inevitable outcome for us humans. We find, we nom nom nom, we move onto something else that's yummier. We've been entertaining you 1000 times with 140 characters or less, and we'll continue creating things that are exciting and new until we're brought to justice, which we might well be. But you know, we just don't give a living fuck at this point - you'll forget about us in 3 months' time when there's a new scandal to gawk at, or a new shiny thing to click on via your 2D light-filled rectangle. People who can make things work better within this rectangle have power over others; the whitehats who charge $10,000 for something we could teach you how to do over the course of a weekend, providing you aren't mentally disabled.
This is the Internet, where we screw each other over for a jolt of satisfaction. There are peons and lulz lizards; trolls and victims. There's losers that post shit they think matters, and other losers telling them their shit does not matter. In this situation, we are both of these parties, because we're fully aware that every single person that reached this final sentence just wasted a few moments of their time.
Thank you, bitches.
Lulz Security

Privacy Facebook

Privacy di Facebook sebagaimana diancamkan di atas memang mengancam kebebasan berekspresi di internet, kita merasa bebas, namun informasi atas kita tidak bisa dihilangkan, atau dengan mudah bisa di restore dikembalikan seperti semula. Memang sulit di era digital seperti ini, seperti yang dialami para seniman musik dengan lagunya yang dibajak, copy paste jadi lebih mudah dan tidak terkendali sebagaimana saya mengkopi pernyataan dan menempelkan video di blog. 

Tentu akan banyak yang bersedih jika Facebook akan dihilangkan, namun akan muncul pula yang lainnya dengan privacy setting yang mungkin lebih baik. Namun ancaman seperti ini sebaiknya ditanggapi positif, dan menjadikan kehati-hatian dalam menggunakan sosial media. Karena toh kita pun sering kesulitan menemukan arsip tweet atau foto yang sudah kelupaan dan lama.Sila cek halaman  untuk cek ulang privacy setting anda.
