Authors: Ahmadinejad, Seyed Hossein

Fong, Philip
Keywords: Facebook, Privacy
Issue Date: 1-Nov-2010
Abstract: We study inference attacks that can be launched via the extension API of Facebook. We explain the threat of these attacks through a reduction to authentication attacks, devise a taxonomy for such attacks, and propose a risk metric to help subscribers of third-party applications refine their privacy expectations.
