Facebook Losing Face After Major Privacy Glitch

Social networking giant Facebook suffered a major privacy glitch this week, where strangers were able to download members' supposedly private restricted photos.
The Associated Press broke the story this week. "The Associated Press verified the loophole Monday after receiving a tip from a Byron Ng, a Vancouver, Canada computer technician. Ng began looking for security weaknesses last week after Facebook unveiled more ways for 67 million members to restrict access to their personal profiles," the story reported. "But the added protections weren't enough to prevent Ng from pulling up the most recent pictures posted by Facebook members and their friends, even if the privacy settings were set to restrict the audience to a select few."
