This one goes out to all you Facebook and AT&T Fans, guess what happened yesterday (March 24, 2011) Morning? well if you are an AT&T Customer, then your data took a small detour through China first and allowed unencrypted data to be viewed by China’s Routers first..
Here is what a Blyon posted yesterday: Quietly this morning customers of AT&T browsing Facebook did so by way of China then Korea. Typically AT&T customers’ data would have routed over the AT&T network directly to Facebook’s network provider but due to a routing mistake their private data went first to Chinanet then via Chinanet to SK Broadband in South Korea, then to Facebook. This means that anything you looked at via Facebook without encryption was exposed to anyone operating Chinanet, which has a very suspect Modus operandi.
What this means to you is… well if you are an AT&T customer your data was at risk from someone in china simple as that. No harm Done I guess but it does make you wonder, what does China want with our facebook Information? Silly Americans, they have silly pet names, who calls their cat shnoodlefry!?
