Do you have photos that you don't want your significant other or potential boss to see? Don't put them on Facebook, because a new security bug allows strangers to peer into your private world.
The security flaw was discovered in by members of a bodybuilding forum, according to ZDNet, who found the exploit and used it to discover the private photos of Facebook chief executive and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg (don't worry, they're pretty dull.) Apparently, if a user clicks on "Report This Photo," Facebook's own tool, and click to report "nudity or pornography," Facebook will give you additional photos -- even from a not-for-public stash -- to look over and possibly report.
Most posters reported hit-or-miss results, and the problem is that you will have to report someone for posting porn or naked pictures when s/he hasn't done that. Still, it can give people who want a glimpse into a user's private life through an open public door even if it tars that person as pervert.
