I. FRONT AND CENTER
---------------------
1. Facebook, Privacy and Contracts
On February 4, the social networking site Facebook made a minor change to its terms of service - the online contract that every user must agree to when they create an account.
Facebook was trying to solve a legitimate problem: People who deleted their accounts did not realize that information that they shared with other users would persist on their Facebook friends' accounts. Thus, they needed some way of telling users that the information might remain.

2. Act Locally, Pwn Globally
By Jeffrey Carr
On December 24, 2008, the Pakistani Whackerz Cr3w defaced a part of India's critical infrastructure, the Eastern Railway system Web site. The defacement appeared on a scroll feed which read: "Cyber war has been declared on Indian cyberspace by Whackerz- Pakistan (24 Dec-2008)."
