Thats so sadly funny... Facebook isn't even the least bit shy anymore, "just give us you cell/mobile number, its for safety!" I wonder what new data correlations and connections they can now make with that extra tidbit of data in that database version of you(in the database version of the world)

+ - How To Hijack a Friend's Facebook Account->

An anonymous reader writes "The security loophole described in this report allows an ex or frenemy to hijack your Facebook account within few minutes. It was discovered at University of Illinois and was reported immediately to Facebook. Interestingly and very surprisingly, other websites such as allfacebook.com pulled the report off their website. It is not confirmed whether Facebook has plugged the loophole."

A friend just forwarded http://www.thewildernessdowntown.com/ to me and advised me to check it out.....wow...I was seriously impressed with the use of HTML5, javascript, the timing between windows,sync with the song, the use of past life addresses to make the experience "yours"...if you have a few minutes I think its worth more than a quick look...I used Chrome to view, you most likely will have to also..

curtisk writes "Last weekend the newly installed PBX at FEMA was hacked/phreaked and over 400 calls were made to the middle east and asia.
The calls ranged in duration from 3 to 10 minutes, overall adding up to $12,000 in charges. Naturally, it must've been the contractor that left a "hole" open, or at least that's their stance at the moment. Investigation is ongoing."
