Craigslist and your anonymity

Filed under Security Awareness

Stumbled upon a very good social experiment by another blogger today in which he researched the identity of a “anonymous” Craigslist poster. While Craigslist does have a decent system for providing anonymous postings it goes to show you that there is always going to be human error..or just plain stupidity. (Note the last link…this was a “sex baiting prank” which goes to show you that people will gladly give out their personal information to complete strangers.)
