In fact they never delete anything. Go ahead and try to re-login and all of the pictures and threads and everything is still sitting there waiting for you to come back. Even though you deleted it three years ago or whatever. You are correct it is still there.

The only thing deleting does is check a "is deleted" box on a server - so it can hide it from you. It works great as a filter I'm sure for whoever can see that data.

Never had FB. Had a Twitter briefly for work as that's what they used for adverse weather notifications. Never really used it, and deleted it probably 5yrs ago. Still, if I click on a news article link that's on Twitter, I am greeted with a prompt to reinstate my account and it even remembers my profile pic.

It was proven LONG ago that no matter how you choose to close or delete your account on Facebook, they keep all your data.

It's also no stretch to say that it's likely Facebook employs the same tactics as google, were anyone you know personally who uses or has used it has had their data scoured as well, and if your name or information about you was so much as mentioned, a data file exists with that information, even though you may never have used it.

30
IWanttotalknow 30 points ago +30 / -0

It's not just that stuff I don't trust.

I'm a city person, just bought my first car - was always using public transport before. Insurance wants to give me better rates but only if I use their app to track my location so they can decide if I'm driving well or not.

That shit sits very poorly with me. I simply imagine the company will sell that data, and even if it doesn't, if FB, Google, etc can be hacked, some insurance company is nothing in comparison to that.

16
Dfalt 16 points ago +17 / -1

Yeah don't fall for that scam. Not only is it super invasive but they'll likely pull shit like seeing a sudden speed change from you slamming on brakes to avoid hitting something and be like "our records indicate you have unsafe driving practices so we're increasing your rate"

Is it electric? I bet they can disable electric cars remotely--which is why they're pushing them.

12
win-o-matic 12 points ago +15 / -3

Nonsense. All conventional cars and trucks contain onboard computers, black-boxes, and telematics... just like EVs. This has been the case for decades. What makes you think those are any less prone to remotely being disabled?

9
elleand202 9 points ago +9 / -0

There's a difference between using something like an EMP to disable an onboard computer and simply sending a command through the car's always connection cellular data connection that instructs the car to not drive. Car's that have an always on data connection that's integrated into the car's internal network have an additional vulnerability that even slightly older cars don't have.

3
Smithereens 3 points ago +4 / -1

To disable a conventional car computer you need direct access with wires or a emp bomb.

Electrical cars can be disabled remotely because they connect with satellite that's the difference.

Calculators have computers too, that doesn't mean they can be disabled remotely

Yet the accelerator doesn't actually have a physical cable to draw the accelerator. It uses a sensor and the computer translates the pressure to acceleration. Bruh

This. Very interesting when you did into the spiderwebs of how all of these sites interconnect and share data - Facebook and Google are beyond connected this way. I was on a site recently, forget which, that simply wouldn't load the page unless you allowed Facebook tracking.

4
FiresideRant 4 points ago +4 / -0

I don't visit FB more than once every few weeks, but the primary reason I keep it around is to monitor what family members who won't leave it are getting into. Additionally, FB is very useful for testing to see which family members or locations you've visited in RL have active listening devices in their homes or locations.

I have made it a point when talking with family to mention certain key words (won't list them here because it would provide FB/google/etc. the opportunity to correct this exploit) which without fail, when there is an active device, result in the targeted advertisements being related to the key words. This has let me build a map of areas that I know 100% for sure are monitored.

It's easy to see if someone has an Amazon Echo and know things are monitored, but knowing how to trigger the algorithm which pushes advertising on facebook is a way to determine what the less obvious devices might be.

Totally paranoid? probably, but knowledge is power, and I'm gaining knowledge through it.

Sansa_Belt 5 points ago +5 / -0

Many years ago, when snail mail was still a thing. I grew increasingly interested when I was solicited from some companies... the timing. So, whenever I signed up for something, or subscribed, and my identity wasn't going onto an official document or inquiry that required my true identity (for my sake), I would change my middle initial. And cycle it as I went...A., B., C., and so on. So each separate new "sign-up" or registration had a marker, so I knew that if I started receiving any type of solicitation, I would know who sold my info and to whom it was sold.

Of course that was long ago. I had accumulated enough data that I ended up writing a paper on it. It really opened my eyes as to how deeply and thoroughly our information is dispersed.

4
Krysdavar 4 points ago +4 / -0

ha ha This is exactly true. Years ago, when we opened our water bill account, of all things, they misspelled my first name. I know, pretty hard to misspell Christopher, but typos happen when people are hasty and don't give AF, it happens. So every time I receive something in the mail with my first name misspelled, and it isn't the water bill...yep. 20+ fucking years later and counting. But hey, it allows me to immediately throw it to the shredder.

Sansa_Belt 3 points ago +3 / -0

Money, money, money. I (sorta) red-pilled an old girlfriend to this pervasive reality. She'd complain that OUR mailbox was always full of junk mail. And I retorted that the volume had multiplied significantly since she started receiving mail at my place, and explained why. She didn't believe me, so we conducted the same experiment... and voila, eyes were opened. To what end... meh, but she at least peeked behind the curtain.

This isn't worth much because your phone and anyone else's phone are tracking you and listening. So unless you're saying the keywords when everyone has their phone out of earshot, you can't really tell if its a listening device or just the phones spying on you.

Hairy_Mouse 8 points ago +8 / -0

Yeah, Google and social media site basically have shadow profiles on everyone, whether or not you PERSONALLY created an account. Thats how they can list people you probably know, and tag names and stuff in photos so easily. Also, Google will automatically generate profiles for businesses and stuff, without any of their input.

If you have friends on social medias, and they've mentioned or posted pictures of/with you, you have a profile whether you know it or not. You can sync your phone contacts with Facebook to find people as well, so Facebook probably has your phone number, too.

These companies don't really delete anything. They just make it so that it's no longer visible to anyone. But the data is still there. That's how we do it with our data/records. At any time, you can "undelete" records and accounts, just in case you made a mistake originally.

Moebius 7 points ago +7 / -0

I deleted everything in my timeline in early 2013 although I was only on FB for about three months before I got fed up with it...and knowing they never really 'delete' your account, I let it steep empty for awhile before I closed the account.

That way they archived an empty account...

Can confirm. At my old job we learned in the early days that when a customer thinks "deleted," they think "in the recycling bin." Backup systems exist for this, but we learned it was just easier to provide customer administrators with a way to restore records flagged as deleted themselves. (Which our tech support team very much appreciated).

I signed up for Facebook like 15 years ago with a fake birthday and haven’t been on it for years and still get email notices of people wishing me a happy birthday.

Nope.

Most certainly. They, like Google and all tech company sovereigns, consider detailed, accurate data about people — all people — to be the most valuable asset they have. We’re not just deplorable plebs to them, we are sub-human commodities to be bought and sold.

Eta: it would absolutely blow your minds in the worst possible way if you could see for one minute the kind of personal data they keep on us, and the algorithms they run to put it to use. More of us decent people need to really realize the seriousness of this! It goes way, way beyond just censorship. These unelected people are beyond sick and evil, and they have a major hand in running the country — in tandem with the national security state. Just as the FDA, NIAID, etc. have a revolving door with big pharma, so do these tech abominations have with the national security state, CIA, NSA, etc. they are essentially a monolith that controls our information along with legacy media. Ok, rant over.

It goes way beyond Facebook. Data scrapers are big business, sites that aggregate public data and then sell that to suckers...er...customers, usually people stalking exes.

It's the stuff sites won't admit to, gotten illegally, that's concerning.

Imagine if Facebook's crypto offering had taken off. Then they'd have people banking information, social security, spending habits...that's the real money, there. Imagine the treasure trove of data Apple is sitting on, with Apple Pay. Or PayPal.

Big Data is only going to get more pernicious and invasive.

Can you think of how long it took to download all that data?

1.5B records, probably from different tables.

Also- this was not encrypted????

DiscoverAFire 6 points ago +6 / -0

Rough numbers gives a few terabytes minimum, which could be downloaded in under an hour with fat enough pipes.

The way skilled hackers would do this is launch the attack from another compromised server - which would have fat pipes. So a couple hours to move the data to a server under their control, and then a few more hours to copy from there to anywhere...

FB spends something crazy like $15B a year on infrastructure. That’s just material spend, not cost of human capital.

How did they not detect the attack?

I can tell you that their SOC isn't worth shit if they didn't see an exfiltration of that magnitude take place.

It would have either been incredibly loud for a very short period of time or it would have been a subtle hint on their screens for months or even years if the exfil was low and slow. If it was encrypted on the outbound and low and slow and the attacker was using some advanced as fuck exfil methods (such as drafting emails with the encoded/encrypted exfil data in a gmail account but not sending them and having something on the other end log into that same gmail account and pull the email out of the draft) it still should have been picked up via metrics-based hunting... a decent SOC, especially one at a "big 5" company should be hunting for that kind of exfiltration in 2021. If their SOC is doing that type of monitoring then the attacker is likely next gen APT and really spread out in facebook's systems.

Or worse (for Facebook, better for us) it was an insider who exfilled it through other means. If their SOC isn't worthless then insider threat using sneakernet is likely the exfil vector if it isn't web scraping.

But it's probably web scraping.

Maga2020Maga2020 1 point ago +1 / -0

My guess is an insider for sure.

They hire from the 3rd world, very tempting for a guy getting sent home to a shithole to just snag the data on the way out the door.

Databases are typically not encrypted in the live database, except for stuff like passwords. Are only encrypted on disk etc. If someone hacked os, yeah they wouldn't have access. If someone "hacked" the database itself and it was live, it will be wide open.

1
catvideos3 1 point ago +2 / -1

Encryption in data at rest and data in transit is the standard for enterprise computing.

Lookup Transparent Data Encryption (TDE).

3
RandArrow 3 points ago +3 / -0

Almost all is decrypted when used, unless it's a hash or something. If they have use of it, or can read the memory, they can read it.

2
SordidPontification 2 points ago +2 / -0

This is the part that people don't really grok fairly quickly.

If the application is running, you can hook into it to extricate the decrypted data with trivial effort. Or use the same credentials the application is using, if you have access to them.

Offline/at rest encryption is really only useful if someone gains credentials to the database but not to the downstream consumers of that data. It's one of many strategies for mitigating the damage done from attacks.

1
RandArrow 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yeah, if the data is not in transit or at rest, in transit and at rest encryption doesn't help. Live data is very much not at rest or in transit most of the time. Can do something weird like decrypting one block at a time to prevent most access, but that slows everything down....

I don't know shit about anything, but did the Chinese put up much of a fight against their social credit system roll out?

And, how exactly would they recommend fighting back?

Because screw that noise, I will never allow a company to control my life. Take my job, take my money, take my land, take my middle fingers, take my dog, take my wife, but you can never take my freedom.

Actually that should be "you WILL never take my freedom". Because they believe death is the ultimate form of taking freedom...but that's just the start for me crab suckers.

I am eagerly waiting the day where they announce private messages, stalking history, What’s App messages and huge, searchable volumes of meta data are hacked and released. It is only a matter of time until everyone is complete owned.

At that point, allowing the government unlimited access to all that stuff won’t be such a big deal. The stuff they do secretly through the NSA can be done openly through the US Social Credit app.
