Most Vulnerable Sites (Used Daily)
« on: December 02, 2014, 12:23:38 PM »
I'm just curious what everyone on here finds to be the most insecure and most vulnerable sites. I'm not looking for a debate, but if one starts, I'll be glad to contribute. Note: More Sites will be added if suggested, I'm at school and running out of time on the laptop, so I just made this a quickie post.

Schplew: No son. It is the world around us that is insane.
FatMax: Did I ever tell you about that one time I was in Juvie?

Das ist des Jägers Ehrenschild,
daß er beschützt und hegt sein Wild,
weidmännisch jagt, wie sich’s gehört,
den Schöpfer im Geschöpfe ehrt.

depends on what you mean by 'vulnerable'... Facebook has the most user information and the least-capable users, so it's probably the best place to fish for personal information.

Twitter has had multiple security issues in the past, mostly revolving around account hijacking and impersonation.

Google/Youtube have a fairly solid history, but the mass of different services attached to a single account leads to a lot of configuration and privacy options that most users won't set up fully, potentially leaking data or leaving the account open to 'theft'...


in terms of hacking the service itself though, good luck. they're all prolific and old enough to be able to avoid the majority of web and network attacks, and any other attacks would rely on very specific knowledge of the service which can't really be compared.

Honestly? Probably this one. But at the same time, it's not at all. Depends on how you define "secure."


Time is always against you in some way or another.
