Decoding Security 107: Your Episode Title is the Last 4 of Your Social + Your Mother’s Maiden Name

Whether it’s a photo that should have never been posted or an angry Facebook rant, it’s not uncommon to see others oversharing on the internet. But did you know that what you post on social media can make your profile a gold mine of information that can be used against you? Cybercriminals can easily build profiles and create targeted attacks, such as a personalized phishing scam, simply based on information about a person or business found freely online.  SiteLock Security Analysts Jessica Ortega and Ramuel Gall discuss the little-known dangers of social media and what individuals and businesses can do to stay safe.

Also in this episode, our security experts discuss the latest headlines in cybersecurity news. For example, the city of Chicago is suing Uber for covering up a data breach that disclosed the data of 57 million users. And, a security researcher recently discovered a vulnerability in Facebook’s new polling feature that could allow hackers to delete any photo on the network. If you’re concerned that your favorite app may have compromised your information, our hosts can help you understand what happened, and what you can do about it.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday may be behind us, but knowing how to shop securely never goes out of season, so be sure to check out last week’s episode for tips and best practices. And for more Decoding Security, subscribe on YouTube, iTunes, or Google Play!
