Uppdatering
Vi löste problemet med en gammal e-postadress och att jag kunde återställa hennes konto med en kod som hon fick via SMS och sedan meddelade mig. (Puh!)

Min vän har blivit kapad. Någon har tagit över hennes Facebookkonto.
Strax efter lunch igår kom ett nödrop från en kär vän som nu befinner sig på Cypern.
Hennes väninna på ön kommer inte in sitt Facebookkonto. Jo visst, hon kommer in, men till en helt annan profil än sin egen.

Jag misstänkte direkt kapning, men varför kommer hon in på en annan profil, det ställer till de i mina tankegångar. Jag ställde frågan hon några vänner på olika ställen på Facebook, och de är övertygade om att hennes konto är kapat. Hon ser alla sina vänner och alla sina minnen, foton, statusuppdateringar på sitt konto, men hon kan INTE hålla kontakten med några av dem, den vägen. Och vad gör kaparna med den information hon har delat på sitt konto?  Jag vågar inte tänka vidare!
Varför finns ett annat konto med hennes namn? En anledning kan vara att de vill blockera hennes e-postadress till att kunna återta hennes egen sida. Hade hon inaktiverat den falska sidan, hade hennes e-postadress varit spärrad i upp till tre månader?

Hur har de kunnat komma åt hennes uppgifter?
Vi vet inte, men vi misstänker skarp dessa tester. Hon har gjort tester på Facebook, tester från en av de absolut värsta testmakare som finns på FB.

Så här beskriver Bluffakuten skillnaden mellan den information som FB tar om dig och det dessa tester tar om dig.

FB är den läskiga personen som går igenom dina sopor för att få reda på saker om dig, företagen bakom testerna är inbrottstjuvar som rensar ditt hus när du är bortrest.
FB pytsar ut lite information till företag som kan va intresserade av dig, testföretagen tar allt i från dig och sen gör vad dom vill med det. Den informationen kan sen användas till sexannonser, falska profiler, falska recensioner, bluffinlägg mm.

Jag ägnade ett stort antal timmar igår till att försöka reda ut vad som hänt, till att återta kontrollen över hennes konto, för att kunna överlämna hennes vänner och minnen till henne igen. Även idag behöver jag ta tid mitt lager och överlämna till henne. Än vet vi inte om vi lyckas. 😦

Jag har gång på gång tjatat om dessa tester om hur farliga de är och ändå finns det de bland mina vänner som ignorera detta. Senast igår när jag skrev om detta på min FB-vägg, fick jag höra ”jag tror inte det är så farligt”. OBS ”tror”…
Här hjälper inte tron, här gäller fakta… Vi VET att en del av dessa tester är farliga, vi vet att det är till för att lura dig, men vi vet inte vad de gör med den informationen sm de får tag i. Vi vet också att du i samband med testen har sålt ut alla dina juridiska möjligheter till ditt material du har där. Längre ner på sidan finns avtalet du godkände när du gjorde testen (skrivet på engelska). Om nu testen bara var för nöjes skull, varför behövs då ett sådant omfattande avtal mellan dig och testmakaren? Ta och fundera lite på det…t

Håll nu tummarna för min vän och för mig, att vi kan återta kontrollen över hennes liv, hennes vänner, hennes bilder mm. Håll tummarna att vi slipper se hennes barn och barnbarn, i sexuella annonser, att någon köpt ett nytt möblemang till vardagsrummet för hennes pengar. Håll nu tummarna att det enda vi lär oss, är att vara försiktiga med vad vi gör i det offentliga rummet, att vi inte utsätter andra och oss själva för fara.

Om du vet att du gjort tester, men inte vill usätta andra…
Kontrollera så du inte har någon app på FB, som spionerar vidare.

Nedan ser ni vad bluffakuten skriver om testerna:

Nedan följer avtalet med en av testmakarna:

This means that Google shortens user IP addresses within an EU member state or in other contractual states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the US where it is shortened.

11.
Google Re/Marketing Services

11.1.
We use the marketing and remarketing services (hereinafter jointly referred to as the „Google Re/Marketing Services”) provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA („Google”).
11.2.
The Google Re/Marketing Services enable us to display ads for and on our Websites and Service in a more targeted manner so that users are only shown ads which might actually be of interest to them. Where users are, for example, shown ads for products in which they were interested on other websites, this is known as „remarketing”. For this purpose, as soon as the user accesses our Websites, or other websites on which Google Re/Marketing Services have been activated, Google immediately executes a Google code and so called re/marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also called Web Beacons) are integrated into the Website. With the help of these tags, an individual cookie, i.e. a small file, is stored on the users’ device (comparable technology can be used instead of cookies). The cookies can be set from various domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. This file keeps a record of which websites the user visits, what content he/she is interested in and which offers he/she has clicked on, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of access and other details about the use of the website content. The users’ IP address is also recorded, whereby we, within the context of Google Analytics, would like to point out that, within member states of the European Union or in other countries that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, the IP address is truncated and only transmitted in its entirety to a Google server in the US and truncated there in exceptional cases. The IP address will not be linked with any of the user’s data from other services offered by Google. The aforementioned information can also be combined with equivalent information from other sources. If the user visits other websites afterwards, he/she can only be shown the ads that directly reflect his/her interests.
11.3.
Within the scope of Google Re/Marketing Services, the users’ data is processed pseudonymously. This means that Google does not, for example, store and process the users’ name or e-mail address, instead processing the relevant data on the basis of the cookies within pseudonymous user profiles. In other words, from Google’s point of view, the ads are managed and displayed for the cookie owner, regardless of who the cookie owner is, rather than for a specifically identified person. This shall not apply where the user has expressly permitted Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information collected about the users via „DoubleClick” shall be transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the US.
11.4.
The online advertising program „Google AdWords” is just one of the Google Re/Marketing Services used by us. In the case of Google AdWords, each AdWords customer is given a different „conversion cookie”. This means that cookies cannot be tracked on the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained through the cookies serves to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The AdWords customers find out the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and have been forwarded to a webpage into which a conversion tracking tag has been integrated. However, they do not receive any information that would allow users to be personally identified.
11.5.
On the basis of Google Re/Marketing Services, we integrate third-party „DoubleClick“ ads. DoubleClick uses cookies that enable Google and its partner websites to run ads based on users visiting this or other websites.
11.6.
On the basis of Google Re/Marketing Services, we also integrate third-party „AdSense“ ads. AdSense uses cookies that enable Google and its partner websites to run ads based on users visiting this or other websites.
11.7.
With the help of Google optimization services, we also test the user-friendliness and effectiveness of our Websites, e.g. by carrying out A/B tests, whereby users are shown different versions of Websites.
11.8.
Other Google Re/Marketing Services we use, are the „Campaign Manager” and the „Google Tag Manager”, which enable us to integrate other Google Analytics and Marketing Services into our Website (e.g. „AdWords”, „DoubleClick” or „Google Analytics”).
11.9.
You can find further information on Google’s use of data for marketing purposes on the site map: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads, Google’s privacy policy can be viewed athttps://www.google.com/policies/privacy.
11.10.
If you wish to object to the collection of data by Google Re/Marketing Services, you can use the settings and opt-out functions provided by Google: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences.
