Wrote a Web Insecurity post last night: Why Facebook is like your psycho ex.


But websites are about as trustworthy as the worst psycho ex: you never know when policies will change, the website will get bought out by someone who has different policies and now controls your data, or someone will exploit a security hole in the website. At least ex-friends aren't usually bought by megacorps who profit from selling all their mementos of your relationship. And probably, unlike websites, 64% of your friends don't have a security flaw.


Been a while since I wrote for that blog, but I'm going back into research mode since paper writing season is over for me, and I'm over my flu, so I'm hoping I'll be able to write more. But what really inspired me was an entertaining if spammy email from $security_company's social networking delegate claiming that I'm a "leading blogger" within the web security industry. Some "leading blogger" when I hadn't posted since February!
