About time folks started putting this together. Looks like we are finally seeing evidence as to why this embracement of the “web 2.0” mentality might have been a little too quick, from a security standpoint. Then again, maybe it’s just corporate paranoia?
Perhaps what is most interesting about all of this, is the fact that we’re talking about security concerns over Web 2.0 type services, not specific vulnerabilities. This means that companies are so uncomfortable with the idea, that are merely pointing to the potential for trouble.
Now here is the funny part. I think there is more of an issue against the social media aspect about all of this, then merely it being a security concern. I mean come on, posting boards, email and telephones can also be a potential security concern, but we don’t see any of them being blocked.
