Single Link of facebook can cross authentication, Check points & Geo location


Last week I was at ClubHack 2011 - a hacking & security conference in Pune. This was my first event after I got membership callfrom ClubHack core founders Rohit Srivastwa, Varun Hirve, Abhijeet Patil & Pankit Thakkar.
ClubHack 2011 was very spacial as this time technical briefings were very interesting. Android & Facebook are the two technologies which are mostly used by tech geeks on daily basis. But most of the people not aware of vulnerabilities in these technologies. Last year we attended to educate people through our 'First Indian Hacking Magazine' -  ClubHack Magazine.
We called for papers for ClubHack 2011 backing in mind to spread awareness about Android & Facebook and fortunately we received many technical papers.
Personally I was looking forward to "One Link Facebook" by Anand Pandey. It was about how single link can bypass username, password, check points & Geo location. As I predicted the talk was amazing. Anand shown a live demonstration of how one link can break authentication checkpoints. We have uploaded the talk here http://www.clubhack.tv/2011/one-link-facebook-anand-pandey/ . But for a "Ethical" reasons we have cropped demonstration from video. But I appeal all people (at least who read my blog post ;) ) to be aware with sharing your personal info & pictures over Facebook. And for learn about security threats & information keep visiting ClubHack Magazine
