Signal used its Ad account on Instagram to show you your personal data it can see, and Facebook promptly shut it down and disabled their Ad account


Signal explained how it went down in a blog post Tuesday. The idea was to post ads on Instagram which use the data an online advertiser may have collected about users, and basically show the user what that data might be for them.

However, Facebook wasn't having it, and shut down both the campaign and Signal's ad account. It's unclear which rule or guideline, exactly, Signal has breached in order to get banned.

See Signal tried to run a very honest ad campaign on Instagram. Facebook said no.

Instead, Signal's ad account on the platform got banned.

So, I'm checking the #FacebookLeak, some people in there doesn't even have a FB account. But it turns out they have a WhatsApp one. In the leaked data WhatsApp users' ID seem to start with 1000. It also includes gender, which is not something one declares when registering on WhatsApp.
Remember that the leak is supposed to be from 2019. That tell us that, 2 years ago, #Facebook was already linking whatsapp data inside Facebook, even when you don't have a FB account, and pushing data from facebook to your #WhatsApp data, like the gender. Two ways binding.

"Local CDN" This extension emulates Content Delivery Networks
(CDNs) by intercepting requests, finding the requested resource and redirecting it to a local equivalent.
The local redirection of CDNs have two main advantages over fetching from CDNs.
1. You will get large libraries instantly without connecting to CDNs which save you bandwidth
2. There will be no connection to the CDN and hence no tracking from this CDN.

533 million #Facebook users’ #phone numbers leaked on hacker forum


source: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/533-million-facebook-users-phone-numbers-leaked-on-hacker-forum/
According to Alon Gal, CTO of #cybercrime intelligence firm Hudson Rock, it is believed that threat actors exploited in 2019 a now-patched #vulnerability in Facebook's "Add Friend" feature that allowed them to gain access to member's phone numbers.

Reminder of why #Signal is far from optimal:

- No #anonymity (every account is connected to a phone number)
- Not #opensource (the git repo of the server hasn't been updated in a year)
- No #decentralization
- No web client, and max. 1 mobile client per account
- No #privacy (your entire contact list is uploaded to the server. It's encrypted, but it's trivial to brute-force encrypted phone numbers. You can prevent it by disabling the PIN feature, but it's enabled by default without warning.)


#Google: Overall, we felt that #blocking third-party #cookies outright without viable alternatives for the ecosystem was irresponsible, and even harmful, to the free and open web we all enjoy.

And that, my dear users, is what you get when you have paralysed your last brain cells with cocaine in a global corporation and believe your own propaganda. Whoever believes that freedom on the internet would be endangered without third-party cookies is unfortunately hopelessly trapped in the capitalist filter bubble and far beyond good and evil.
