Security Experts Say That 10 Concerts: Facebook Post May Be Dangerous.

posted by Big Mark Clark - 

If you're on Facebook, there’s no doubt your feed was inundated last  week with "the list of 10 concerts" your friends have attended, with  only one being fake. Well, if you were one of those folks who resisted,  you were smart because those who did may have opened themselves up to  hackers.

While the list may have seemed innocent enough, most people probably  forgot that a common security question online is to name the first  concert they attended, so if anyone actually shared that information on  social media, it may have revealed some crucial information to those who  want to break into your online accounts.

“If I’m a hacker, I’m taking full advantage of this,” Fatemeh Khatibloo,  an analyst with Forrester Research, tells “USA Today.” She advises  people to quickly delete that post, adding, “Don’t make those kinds of  answers about your life public.”

Of course, not everyone seems to be that worried by the concert post. “I think we’re all getting a little paranoid,” Per Thorsheim,  a Norway based security expert, adds. “People said you should never  post on Facebook that you’re going on vacation and when you’re coming  back, because someone will read that and come clean you out, but I do it  all the time, and I have had no problem posting vacation photos.”
