"Mr O'Brien had some tips for LinkedIn users worried that they might have befriended a hacker.

"You can do a reverse image search by dragging and dropping the profile picture into Google Images and see what it brings up.
"Copying and pasting the job information in Google can also reveal whether it has been taken from somewhere else."
Hackers are using fake LinkedIn profiles to befriend professionals and use their information in future attacks.

Formalizing my ‪#‎adoption‬ search and reunion business with a dedicated website.
Adoption Search and Reunion locates and reunites adoptees, birthmothers, birthfathers, siblings, and all birth family members who have been separated by the adoption process or other types of family separation.

Facebook confirmed to Mashable that it is testing a way for users to search other users’ profiles, but they will only see content that they have been granted access to.

I was interviewed on adoption investigations. You can listen anytime at PI's Declassified and find out more about this unique service at adoptionsearcher.com.
It is estimated approximately six million Americans are adoptees according to genealogy expert Kimberly Powell, around 2% of the population.

"Instead of the unfathomable "Unknown" and vague "Other", LinkedIn should provide us with a search/source chain like this:

[Name/Anonymous] found you by [this activity] or [keyword] on [this date] and visited your Profile on [this date] via [LinkedIn] [LinkedIn search] [Group] [Pulse] [Update] etc."

"There’s a common misconception that encrypting your hard disk makes your computer secure, but this isn’t entirely true. In fact, disk encryption is only useful against attackers that have physical access to your computer. It doesn’t make your computer any harder to attack over a network."
If you want to encrypt your hard disk, you should know the basics of what disk encryption protects, what it doesn't protect, and how to avoid common mistakes.

If it is on the Internet, it should be considered public.  I tell people to encrypt on an offline system, move it to the online one, and then send it.  The person on the other end does the opposite.  Anything else is not really secure.
