  2. A Korean commissioned determined that the social network shared 3.3 million users' data. South Korea’s Personal Information Protection Commission (PIPC) has slapped Facebook with a 6.7 billion won (around US$6.1 million) fine for sharing user information without consent.

According to Yonhap News, the PIPC determined that the social network shared the personal information of 3.3 million South Korean users (out of a to
  3. MOSCOW (AP) — A court in Moscow fined Twitter and Facebook 4 million rubles each Thursday for refusing to store the personal data of Russian citizens on servers in Russia, the largest penalties imposed on Western technology companies under internet use laws. The fines of nearly $63,000 are the first five-figure fines levied on tech companies since Russia adopted a flurry of legislation starting in 2012 designed to tighten the government’s grip on online activity. One provision required tech companies to keep servers in Russia for storing personal informatio
  4. The biggest and perhaps best source of data about what people like to watch on the internet and what they would pay for doesn’t come from streaming giants like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, or Hulu. It comes from porn. While consuming porn is typically a private and personal affair, porn sites still track your every move: What content you choose, which moments you pause, which parts you repeat. By mining this data to a deeper degree than other streaming services, many porn sites are able to give internet users exactly what they want—and they want a lot of it. Th
  5. Staff penned an open letter in an effort to be transparent A security bug that hit Tumblr’s recommended blogs module may have exposed users’ private information, according to an open letter. Information like email addresses, passwords, IP addresses, and self-reported locations may have become exposed due to the bug if individual accounts were hit. It’s unclear if the bug affected individual accounts, according to the open letter, but an investigation concluded that the bug “was rarely present.” “We’ve also thoroughly investigated any way in which our co
  6. An open database exposed at least 11 million photographs after the Theta360 photo sharing system run by Ricoh was breached. “The data breach exposed thousands of users’ photos, many of whom chose to keep their images private,” according to a blog post from vpnMonitor, whose researchers, Noam Rotem and Ran Locar, discovered the database. “The breach did not expose users’ most personal information, but in many cases, we located their usernames, first and last names, and the captions they wrote in the exposed database.” While the researchers couldn’t directly
  7. Australia-based AmazingCo Exposed User Data Through Unsecured Database These days, the frequency of incidents of firms leaking user data through unprotected databases is on a rise.

  8. Updated: Google is preparing a patch for late April 2019. Some of the suspicious PDF files exploiting this bug don't appear to be malicious in nature. A security firm said this week that it discovered PDF documents exploiting a Google Chrome browser zero-day. The vulnerability allowed attackers to collect data from users who opened PDF files inside Chrome's built-in PDF viewer. Exploit detection service EdgeSpot, the company that found the files, says the PDF documents would contact a remote domain with information on the users' device --such as IP a
  9. LA wants Uber’s location data, but the ride-hailing company says it’s worried about privacy The fight between the city of Los Angeles and scooter companies over location data is heating up. On Monday, Uber filed a lawsuit against LA’s Department of Transportation (LADOT) pushing back against the requirement that scooter operators share anonymized real-time location data with the city. The suit, which was first reported by CNET but has yet to be filed in LA Superior Court, centers on LADOT’s use of a digital tool called the mobility data specification

The U.S. government led the way with the most number of requests — 50,741 demands for user data resulting in some account or user data given to authorities in 88%
  11. News broke last week that Adware Doctor, an ad-blocker sold in the Mac App Store, quietly stole its users' browser histories and sent them to a server in China. This malicious data collection was independently confirmed by two researchers and promptly disclosed to Apple but remained in the virtual store, seemingly until it started making headlines. Over the weekend, the saga continued with revelations that several other apps in the Mac App Store were doing the same thing. A report said to be published by cybersecurity vendor Trend Micro says people had been complaining
