#355 - Facebook security (Watt Thoughts)

Oddly enough I just discovered Facebook has a problem on password changes. I changed my password yesterday from my desktop and logged out a bunch of sessions FB showed me with from logging in on different networks and computers. (that in itself is a weak security item as they should all log off in a day at max, and should be shorter. I did not tell it or Chrome to remember passwords as that can also be a security issue). Now I just went to Facebook on my desktop which had been off all weekend and it did not request new password and just let me right in. I logged out and had to use new. But someone who had stolen a password would still be able to get in account even if owner had changed passwords. This is very weak security of Facebook. Easy to keep hacking accounts.



This is a little article I am doing across the Internet of my personal opinions. This reflects my personal thoughts. I try to write several times a month on a variety of subjects. It may be religious at times, political at times, and at other times just my reactions on something happening out there. It will often be like an op-ed article. If I do what I intend, you will at times want to shout I agree, other times you will want to say Dwight has really lost it now, but most importantly I want to challenge you to think. Feel free to forward this to others. If you don't want to get this e-mail let me know. Feel free to use what you read from me, but I request you give me credit and send a tear sheet if published in a newspaper or magazine. Thanks.
