BBC Exposes Serious Facebook Privacy Flaw

The BBC's technology programme Click has exposed a security flaw in the social networking site Facebook which could compromise privacy.

Using a simple malicious application could open up yourself and your friends (who do not need to install the application) to ID fraud. The BBC has compiled a video to demonstrate the flaw and if you are an avid Facebook user I suggest you watch it and take note. It's not clear whether the techniques described by the BBC are currently in use on Facebook but if one of your friends only has to add the application and this opens your Facebook profile up this is a serious flaw.
