What can we learn from the eBay email crisis?By Sj.Cliff
Most of us think that giving out an email address just leaves us open to spam but the result could actually be a lot more sinister.
A team of actors showed just how much someone can find out about you though an email address – and captured it all on video for Experian.
After setting up a fake mailing list at a bar, the team took to the web to find out about strangers and pretend they’d know them for years. It only took a few minutes for people to be tricked into believing the actors were long lost friends. Watch the video here.
Shopping online or simply oversharing is becoming a big part of our lives. Simple as it sounds, keeping up to date on your internet security is now even more important.
Especially seen as eBay recently revealed that the details of over 145 million people were compromised.
