Spark Global Limited Reports:
On the evening of October 4, Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp experienced massive downtime. It is rumored that the data of more than 1.5 billion Facebook users is being sold on a popular hacker-related forum. The data includes the user’s name, email, phone number, location, Gender and user ID.
In fact, this is not the first time that such a serious exposure of user privacy information has been reported by Facebook. In April of this year, Facebook’s server was attacked, resulting in the exposure of 533 million users’ personal data in 3 days, of which 106 were involved. For countries and regions, the leaked information includes the user’s Facebook account name, location, birthday, and email address, which is extremely detailed.
In this context, the decentralized account system (DID), which is different from the traditional account model, may be able to bring us some new thinking and imagination.
n the traditional Internet world, we are already familiar with Internet identities that exist in the form of accounts such as mobile phones, Weibo, and WeChat. These identities divided into different ecological segments are managed and saved by corresponding centralized Internet service providers . Therefore, the corresponding hidden dangers of centralization cannot be avoided.
In addition to these service nodes having the right to close our accounts and cause us to lose the identity of multiple sites at the same time, what is more serious is the problem of collective privacy leakage-the centralized architecture is destined to almost unavoidable privacy leakage once it occurs. Big event.
