Facebook’s NSA Warning
“Please Secure Your Accounts Now. Jay, we believe your Facebook account and other online accounts may be the target of attacks from state-sponsored actors,” reads the sample desktop notification users will receive if their accounts have been compromised.
Whoever’s job it is to liase between Facebook and the NSA must be having a lot of fun right now.
(To be fair, the notification also shows up for GCHQ1 and other state-sponsored hacking groups, not just the NSA. The original version of this story that I saw actually was discussing GCHQ, not the NSA.)
