For over two months, bots ran amuck in Facebook gathering private information about thousands of Facebookers. The good news? The bots were released by researchers who did not exploit the private information -- not hackers who surely would.
The bad news? It is probably just a matter of time before bad guys do the exact same thing the researchers from the University of British Columbia did with such apparent ease.
Even worse? The researchers believe that Facebook is more secure than rival social media sites. Good thing we all let our Myspace accounts go!
