Hot Zuckerberg Detained in UK & Confidential Emails Leaked Online

Facebook is in the centre of yet another data-breach scandal

EVER felt paranoid you’re being “watched” on social media? The latest scandal around Facebook won’t make you feel any better.

EVER paranoid that you’re being “watched” on social media? The latest drama surrounding Facebook probably won’t help lessen those feelings.

The social media giant is currently embroiled in the largest data scandal of its history, following allegations that Cambridge Analytica tapped the Facebook profiles of more than 50 million people without their permission.

The story was broken by The Guardian over the weekend, who reported the data may have been used to influence the outcome of the United States election in 2016.

Thousands have deleted their facebook accounts of it.

UK Parliament Seizes Cache of Facebook Internal Papers

Documents Alleged to Contain Revelations on Data and Privacy Controls That Led to Cambridge Analytica Scandal

The Guardian UK, 26 Nov 2018.


Parliament has used its legal powers to seize internal Facebook documents in an extraordinary attempt to hold the US social media giant to account after chief executive Mark Zuckerberg repeatedly refused to answer MPs’ questions.


The cache of documents is alleged to contain significant revelations about Facebook decisions on data and privacy controls that led to the Cambridge Analytica scandal. It is claimed they include confidential emails between senior executives, and correspondence with Zuckerberg.


Damian Collins, the chair of the culture, media and sport select committee, invoked a rare parliamentary mechanism to compel the founder of a US software company, Six4Three, to hand over the documents during a business trip to London.

In another exceptional move, parliament sent a
Serjeant at Arms to his hotel with a final warning and a two-hour deadline to comply with its order.
When the software firm founder failed to do so, it’s understood he was escorted to parliament. He was told he risked fines and even imprisonment if he didn’t hand over the documents.

(
Serjeant-at-Law (SL), commonly known simply as a Serjeant, was a member of an order of barristers at the English bar.The position of Serjeant-at-Law (servientes ad legem), or Sergeant-Counter, was centuries old; there are writs dating to 1300 which identify them as descended from figures in France before the Norman Conquest.)


“We are in uncharted territory,” said Collins, who also chairs an inquiry into fake news. “This is an unprecedented move but it’s an unprecedented situation. We’ve failed to get answers from Facebook and we believe the documents contain information of very high public interest.”

The seizure is the latest move in a bitter battle between the British parliament and the social media giant. The struggle to hold Facebook to account has raised concerns about limits of British authority over international companies that now play a key role in the democratic process.

Facebook, which has lost more than $100bn in value since March when the Observer exposed how Cambridge Analytica had harvested data from 87m US users, faces another potential PR crisis. It is believed the documents will lay out how user data decisions were made in the years before the Cambridge Analytica breach, including what Zuckerberg and senior executives knew.

MPs leading the inquiry into fake news have repeatedly tried to summon Zuckerberg to explain the company’s actions. He has repeatedly refused. Collins said this reluctance to testify, plus misleading testimony from an executive at a hearing in February, had forced MPs to explore other options for gathering information about Facebook operations.

“We have very serious questions for Facebook. It misled us about Russian involvement on the platform. And it has not answered our questions about who knew what, when with regards to the Cambridge Analytica scandal,” he said.

“We have followed this court case in America and we believed these documents contained answers to some of the questions we have been seeking about the use of data, especially by external developers.”

The documents seized were obtained during a legal discovery process by Six4Three. It took action against the social media giant after investing $250,000 in an app. Six4Three alleges the cache shows Facebook was not only aware of the implications of its privacy policy, but actively exploited them, intentionally creating andeffectively flagging up the loophole that Cambridge Analytica used to collect data. That raised the interest of Collins and his committee.

A Facebook spokesperson said that Six4Three’s “claims have no merit, and we will continue to defend ourselves vigorously”.

The files are subject to an order of a Californian superior court, so cannot be shared or made public, at risk of being found in contempt of court. Because the MPs’ summons was issued in London where parliament has jurisdiction, it is understood the company founder, although a US citizen, had no choice but to comply. It is understood that Six4Three have informed both the court in California and Facebook’s lawyers.

Facebook said: “The materials obtained by the DCMS committee are subject to a protective order of the San Mateo Superior Court restricting their disclosure. We have asked the DCMS committee to refrain from reviewing them and to return them to counsel or to Facebook. We have no further comment.”

It is unclear what, if any, legal moves Facebook can make to prevent publication. UK, Canada, Ireland, Argentina, Brazil, Singapore and Latvia will all have representatives joining what looks set to be a high-stakes encounter between Facebook and politicians.

Richard Allan, vice-president for policy who will testify at the special session after Zuckerberg declined to attend, said the company takes its responsibility around “a number of important issues around privacy, safety and democracy ... very seriously”.

Don
't Mess With The Brits Mr Zuckerberg....

Update Re: Zuckerberg Detained in UK & Confidential Emails Leaked Online

Confidential Emails Sent by Facebook Executives Leaked Online

Communications between senior figures, including Mark Zuckerberg, shed new light on data use

The Guardian UK, 24 FEB 2019.


Documents posted online Friday appear to be confidential internal Facebook communications that reveal new details of the company’s treatment of user data.

About 60 pages of un-redacted exhibits from a lawsuit between Facebook and Six4Three, an app developer, were posted anonymously on GitHub on Friday. They include emails between various Facebook executives, including CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and a “highly confidential” 2012 memo detailing various policy matters.

The Guardian has not been able to independently confirm the authenticity of the documents, but redacted versions of some of the exhibits have been previously published.


“Like the other documents that were cherrypicked and released in violation of a court order last year, these by design tell one side of a story and omit important context,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “As we’ve said, these selective leaks came from a lawsuit where Six4Three, the creators of an app known as Pikinis, hoped to force Facebook to share information on friends of the app’s users.

These documents have been sealed by a Californian court so we’re not able to discuss them in detail.”


The new cache of emails appears to refer to what could have been a catastrophic privacy breach for Facebook: a near-miss situation in which a third-party app could have disclosed the company’s financial results ahead of schedule.

In an email thread, the former Facebook vice-president Michael Vernal refers to some kind of issue with an app, noting that it “could have been near-fatal for Facebook Platform / Login / etc”.

“Wow that would have been a disaster,” responds Avichal Garg, a former director of product management at Facebook.

“If Mark had accidentally disclosed earnings ahead of time because a platform app violated his privacy … literally, that would have basically been fatal for Login / Open Graph / etc,” Vernal responded.

He went on to urge everyone on the thread to keep the incident confidential, writing: “Listen guys/gals – DO NOT REPEAT THIS STORY OFF OF THIS THREAD.” He added: “I’m super, super serious here. I want us to follow-up on this and respond urgently here, but I also do not want this story spreading inside of Facebook or off of this thread at all. I can’t tell you how terrible this would have been for all of us had this not been caught quickly.”


The sealed court dockets have been at the center of a transatlantic controversy since November, when they were obtained by the UK parliament under extraordinary circumstances. Produced by Facebook during the discovery process of a 2015 lawsuit filed by Six4Three, the documents were sealed by the California state judge overseeing the case.

When Six4Three founder Ted Kramer was in London in 2018, however, he provided them to Damian Collins, the chair of the parliamentary committee that was investigating Facebook, after Collins told Kramer that failure to do put him in “contempt of parliament”.

How Kramer came to have access to the documents in the first place, and whether he should have provided them to Collins while in the UK despite the court order, were the subject of considerable opprobrium by the California court – and by Facebook.

Collins, whose digital, culture, media and sport (DCMS) committee published the results of its inquiry into fake news and disinformation on Monday, released a redacted selection of the documents he had obtained in December.

Another of the newly exposed documents appears to be a July 2012 memo from Marne Levine, who at the time was Facebook’s vice-president global public policy. The eight-page memo, marked “highly confidential”, offers a fascinating look inside the company’s policy maneuvers.

In one section, Levine discusses plans for data collection on Android devices, writing:

“We’ll be collecting users’ location data and matching it with cell site IDs. This information will be stored in anonymous form but will allow us to roll out location-aware ‘feature phone’ products in the future. Second the growth team wants to begin collecting certain limited information about whether users have a non-Google app store enabled and which default applications they are using for certain Facebook functions (camera, messages, etc) for competitive analysis and product improvement purposes.”


Elsewhere in the memo, Levine details efforts by various Facebook executives and employees to curry favor with politicians around the world. Among other things, Levine celebrates a meeting between Gen Martin Dempsey, then chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, and Sheryl Sandberg, noting the Dempsey and his wife are “both active Facebook users”. The memo also references a successful effort to persuade the former Indian president Pranab Mukherjee to join Facebook.

The memo also references a meeting between a Facebook staffer and the head of California’s eCrime unit to discuss then California attorney general Kamala Harris’s office of privacy protection.

“The meeting went well and we were left with several useful assurances about the AG’s intentions – the most important being that they view Facebook as a good actor and they will keep communications with us open (we will not unknowingly be the subject of an investigation),” Levine wrote.

The Guardian has contacted Six4Three for comment. Ted Kramer declined to comment.
