Quartz reports that those of us who’ve been setting our Instagram accounts to “private” may not be sharing as selectively as we thought. “A privacy hole was publicly exposing an untold number of photographs Instagram users believed were private, until Instagram fixed it this weekend,” the report states. Meanwhile, Google is contending that WhiteHat Security’s privacy-centric Aviator browser—hailed as the Internet’s “most secure and private browser”—has “dangerous vulnerabilities” and “is far behind Chrome in patched security flaws,” ZDNet reports. And, PCWorld reports, “A glitch in the search software in Apple’s OS X Yosemite can expose private details of Apple Mail users, revealing their IP address as well as other system details to spammers, phishers and online tracking companies.”
