Your Facebook Chats Are Being Monitored By CIA-Funded Agencies
Surprise, surprise. So now your lame late night Facebook chats and plans to paint the school with flashy slogans, all are being monitored by CIA-funded agencies.
Coder website Bosnadev revealed in a blog post that a CIA-funded company scans private chat messages on Facebook, meaning that Facebook Privacy is non-existent. The group found out about this when the link to an unpublished app from the company was posted through Facebook’s private chat service. They then noticed some unusual activity after keeping track of any attempt to access the link.
“During the testing of an application we’ve set up in a non-published area we have noticed some unusual activity,” said Bosnadev. “The link for the app was sent via Facebook chat and afterwards comes the interesting part.”
The blog then showed some screenshots of the IP addresses and activity being noticed, where for one link, there were a whole lot of IPV6 links depicted. Some of the IP addresses belonged to Facebook, while some had links to “Recorded Future.”
Recorded Future is an American-Swedish firm which identifies real-time online risks through web-based source collecting and analyzing. These include analyzing links that have never been published anywhere else.
However, Recorded Future denied any involvement with Facebook’s private chat access.
“We have no idea what the guy is referring to. We only get Public/Open Facebook data, and certainly have no interest nor any technical ability to get to any chat data at all,” said Recorded Future.
The company also claimed that they found the URL at a public site and that the case is not at all related to Facebook chat messages which contain the link.
