Facebook’s Sir Nick criticised Over Whats-App securityBBC #Sir_NickJanuary 24, 2020

Mr Bezos’ phone was hacked in May 2018 after he received a WhatsApp message loaded with malware.
But in an interview with the BBC, Sir Nick said WhatsApp’s encrypted messages could “not be hacked into”.
And he failed to acknowledge security flaws in the app that had let hackers compromise their target’s smartphones.
The kingdom’s US embassy has described the allegations as “absurd”.
When asked about the hack in an interview with BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Sir Nick said: “It can’t have been anything when the message was sent in transit because that’s end-to-end encrypted on WhatsApp.
But cyber-security researchers have pointed out that security flaws in WhatsApp’s software have previously been discovered.
Sir Nick told the BBC: “If someone sends you a malicious email, it only comes to life when you open it.”
However, some of the most significant vulnerabilities in WhatsApp let hackers install their malware without the recipient doing anything at all.
Facebook told the BBC it had nothing to add to Sir Nick’s comments.
Adult spanking is a curious thing. I mean, most of us did not like being spanked as children. We dreaded spankings, didn’t we? So, why do so many of us long to be spanked as adults. I think for some of us, it is for sexual pleasure. For others, it is to meet an emotional need. Maybe we feel we deserve it before we enjoy fucking. Some parts of society make women feel we are bad if we enjoy being fucked. So, maybe we feel better about our longing if we are punished first. I will tell you why I want you to spank me.
