Facebook has reset the access tokens of almost 50 million accounts it knew were affected. It has also taken the precautionary step of resetting access tokens for another 40 million accounts that have been subject to "View As" look-up in the last year. "For now, logging out and back in is all that is necessary. The truly concerned should use this as a reminder and an opportunity to review all of their security and privacy settings on Facebook and all other social media platforms," Chester Wisniewski, Principal Research Scientist with global cyber security major Sophos, said. According to Dr Gary McGraw, Vice President of Security Technology, Synopsys (Software Integrity Group), this breach emphasises just how important software security is, and how subtle solid security engineering can be. "When a feature like 'View As' can be turned on its head into an exploit, it indicates a design problem that led to unanticipated security vulnerability," noted Dr McGraw.

The purpose of education is to enable balanced growth of every dimension of a human being which is not possible without innovation," Modi said. "Innovation is very important because without it, life seems like a burden. In our ancient universities like Tak- shshila, Nalanda and Vikramashila, innovation was given emphasis along with knowledge. "I insist that students should gain knowledge in classrooms of college, university but they also add them to the aspirations of the country," he added. Stressing upon the need for "interlinking" the institutions, Modi said no country or person can live in isolation. "Our universities and colleges should be leveraged to ﬁnd solutions to the challenges fac- Revanth throws a challenge to KCR CONGRESS LEADER SAYS HE’S READY FOR A PROBE BY SITTING JUDGE OUR BUREAU Hyderabad: Congress working president A Revanth Reddy on Saturday challenged Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao to order an inquiry by a sitting judge on the assets owned by him since he got elected as MLC and the assets owned by Rao since 2001.
