Today Rendition Infosec presented a webcast on the Facebook API breach. We covered what we know and what we don’t about the breach up to this point.
Note: the audio has a few issues. I apologize for some audio problems we had due to a user interface issue with our webcast provider. We’ve fixed it for the future, but unfortunately, there’s an echo in this broadcast.
One of the big takeaways from this breach is the supply chain risk that comes from developers not appropriately using a third party identity management provider like Facebook. Carefully evaluate your risk when considering whether to allow a third party to access your data.
