  • Oh look. Facebook "likeing" has security vulnerabilities. At the moment, what's out there appears just to spam your facebook friends by inserting extra "likes" into your feed. Wonder how long before someone uses it to do something more malicious? This is pretty much the ne plus ultra of my problems with Facebook – it's not just that they're shady privacy invading bastards, it's that they're actively encouraging people to have bad security habits, by teaching them to trust things that are not trustworthy, and it's only a matter of time until someone gets seriously screwed by that.
