Ever suspected your friends may be snooping on your Facebook profile behind your back? It turns out they are, a new study shows.

New research from the University of British Columbia in Canada says 24 percent — or more than one in five subjects — had accessed someone else’s Facebook account without permission, and 21 percent have been victims (that knew about the unauthorized access).

The security community calls this kind of profile snooping a “social insider attack.” This means the attacker knows the victim and gains access to the account by physically accessing the victim’s device, whether it’s a phone, tablet, laptop or something else. Read more…

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
