FTC Privacy Probe Settlement Imposes $5 Billion Penalty, New Restrictions and Modified Corporate Structure on Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg Held Personally Responsible for Privacy Programs Compliance

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced that Facebook will pay a record-breaking $5 billion penalty and submit to new restrictions and a modified corporate structure to hold the company accountable for the decisions it makes about its users’ privacy. The fine and new restrictions settle an FTC investigation into whether Facebook violated a 2012 FTC order by deceiving users about their ability to control the privacy of their personal information specifically in regards to the data of  87 million Facebook users used without their permission in the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Under the settlement between Facebook and the FTC, Mark Zuckerberg is held personally responsible in a limited fashion and will have to personally certify his company’s compliance with its privacy programs. False certifications could expose him to civil or criminal penalties.

Wikipedia users in Europe and the UK and a number of places in the Middle East were unable to access the site yesterday after it fell victim to a “massive and widespread” denial-of-service (DDoS) attack. The website reappeared shortly before midnight but went offline again early this morning. Wikipedia announced that it is experiencing intermittent outages and is working to restore access.

Cryptocurrency Loan Site YouHolder Leaked 86 Million Lines of Customer Records, Including Credit Card and User Transactions, Via Unsecured Server

Cryptocurrency loan start-up YouHodler exposed reams of customer credit cards and user transactions for almost a month because it forgot to protect the server with a password security researchers Noam Rotem and Ran Locar at VPNMentor discovered. The database contained 86 million lines of daily updating records of the lending platform, containing streams of logs and computer commands based on users’ interactions on the front-end website. Once the researchers reported the leak, YouHodler secured the server.

Binance Says a Hacker Who Claims to Have Hacked the Hacker Who Stole 7,000 Bitcoin from the Exchange Is Demanding a Blackmail Payment of 300 Bitcoin

During a month-long series of conversations with CoinDesk, a hacker using the pseudonym of Bnatov Platon claimed to have allegedly hacked individuals behind an earlier hack in which 7,000 bitcoin was stolen from Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange. Platon produced photos that he claimed to have hacked from the hacker and then demanded a bug bounty from the exchange. Binance says that an unidentified hacker has threatened and harassed the company, demanding 300 Bitcoin, worth around $3.6 million, in exchange for withholding 10,000 photos that bear similarity to its data. Binance is investigating this case for legitimacy and relevancy.

Apple Apologizes for Now-Suspended Practice of Allowing Workers to Listen to Siri Recordings But Plans to Reinstate Practice After Software Tinkering

In a rare concession, Apple apologized for privacy mishaps surrounding its Siri voice assistant and said that it would no longer retain audio recordings of Siri interactions, among other changes. “As a result of our review, we realize we haven’t been fully living up to our high ideals, and for that we apologize,” Apple said in a statement. The move follows criticism of Apple and other Silicon Valley tech giants for employing humans to listen to recordings of user interactions with voice assistants in a bid to improve their products.  Apple, however, plans to reinstate the practice after making a few changes in software updates this fall that will give users more control over their privacy.

Anonymous Hacker Compromised Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s Account Through SIM Swapping and Tweeted String of Racist Messages, Bomb Threats

An anonymous hacker took over Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s account for 20 minutes and used it to send out a string of racist messages and bomb threats. A group that calls itself the “Chuckle Gang,” which has broken into other high-profile Twitter accounts before, apparently broke into the @jack account at 3:45 pm and sent out dozens of tweets and retweets. Other who have been attacked by these hackers blamed so-called SIM swap attacks, with a particular focus on AT&T and Twitter confirmed that Dorsey’s breach was a SIM swap as well. It’s unclear, however, how Dorsey was able to regain access to his account so quickly if the attack was a result of a SIM swap.

Viral Face-Swapping Zao Hits the Top of the App Store Charts But Sparks Massive Privacy Concerns Due to Initial User Agreement Terms

Chinese face-swap app Zao soared to the top of app store charts over the weekend, currently topping the free download chart on China’s iOS store, but sparking privacy concerns along the way because Zao’s user agreement initially stated that the app had “free, irrevocable, permanent, transferable, and relicense-able” rights to all this user-generated content.  Zao, wholly owned by Chinese hookup and live-streaming service Momo Inc., has since updated its terms and says it won’t use headshots or mini videos uploaded by users for purposes other than to improve the app or things pre-agreed by users. The China E-Commerce Research Center has nonetheless urged authorities to look into the matter.

@fs0c131y: Reminder: It’s still a bad idea to give a photo of your face to a random app

Alleged DAO Hacker: I Didn’t Hack, I Took Advantage of The System in Place

The alleged hacker of the DAO cryptocurrency exchange told Crypto Coin News that he is not a hacker but simply took advantage of the smart contracting system to make money — namely he took advantage of something called the “Recursive Call Exploit.” Currency miners who oppose a “fork,” i.e. a move to roll back the transaction, will share in one million ether and 100 bitcoin.
