Mark Zuckerberg has been noticeably absent since the scandal broke. It personally doesn’t surprise me because Facebook has never been safe, secure or private regardless of your privacy settings. Your data is legally there to be traversed by third parties for marketing purposes and for governmental agencies to surveil and analyze you. This is essentially all in the TOS and for a company based in the US they are legally obligated to co-operate with entities such as the NSA, FBI, CIA for whatever they need, even if it would normally be a violation of the law.
To add insult to injury, Mark Zuckerberg actually didn’t apologize in his initial response to the privacy issues.
Deeper issues have recently revealed right to the top of the British Government and the Royal Family, including MoD ties to SCL (the company which is regarded as one and the same as CA). They had contracts with NATO, UK Tory Party, and even the US State Department. There is a General Tolhurst who is an aide to the Queen who is also on the board of SCL. Even closer is a third cousin of Queen Elizabeth the II, Ivar Mountbatten.
The reason I mention all of this is because it sounds more like a co-operation between elite business and government than an accidental data breach or hacking done on behalf of a private company.
This could be why Mark Zuckerberg has been so quiet about it, after all those who are familiar with IT security and espionage cannot believe this is just a group of hackers. With the breach being so significant and wide scale, why didn’t Facebook notice this sooner? It seems like they either noticed it or were fully aware, but only took action after someone revealed it to the public.
I am certain more revelations will come out and they will probably be no less shocking than what we know.
