What have you always wondered about the economy? Tell Us

I guess geofencing has really arrived. It already has its first security flaw.

John Moe Sep 1, 2011

That geofencing feature that Flickr rolled out yesterday could have a big flaw. You can restrict geotagging codes on pics, but if someone downloads the picture and looks at the EXIF data, there’s a possibility that all the restricted info could come rushing back. More and more cameras, especially smartphones, geotag pictures when they’re taken.
