Wouldn't slightly altering the file change the generated hash? It would need to be an identical copy of the picture. All you'd need to do is resize it or something to beat their system. This fairly useless as well a just being utterly stupid.


Same for videos?

Facebook isn't really the biggest problem though, people will just upload to other sites.

Best solution to this, stop sending nude pics of yourself.

Seriously who the hell actually likes a D!ck pic anyway!

I think this is a case where personal responsibility and education is what is needed not some massive database of nudes


excellent point about facebook but... i don't think most 'revenge porn' is OF dicks, just BY dicks.

I was joking but yeah I know you're right.

Its actually a very serious problem I don't mean to trivialise it.

While I'm no expert on ashes, my impression of them be that its a suped up version of "CRC".

I seem to remember with CRC, if you alter the file the number changes.

Meaning you go and well alter the file and then wouldnt the new file have a different hash number thus bypassing this system??


Anyways, I can see all sorts of brand loyalist morons buying into this scheme, even getting off on it. And for sure some sickos up at corporate will be making video reels to play at company parties.

I guarantee you this was made so that some people inside Facebook could sit back and accumulate a vast hoard of nudes for their own personal collections.
"Oh, sure, we'll help protect you against other people seeing your nudes. All you have to do is send them to us. We promise we won't look."

Girls and guys: Understand that when you send nudes to someone electronically, the entire internet may have access to them for the rest of time. If this bothers you, then don't send nudes.

wait..... so Facebook...... that has profiles get hacked on a daily basis...... that passes everyone's information around....... is wanting people to let them be in charge of a giant archive of skin pics....... to help deter them from being publicized?!

I don't even know what to say about this. Given the amount of younger users on FB, wouldn't that also mean that FB would be in possession of massive amounts of child pornography?

This can't be real

I was actually thinking the same thing. Any idiot with MS Paint could make a trivial change to the picture, and it would likely be enough to defeat the recognition software.

Nah, despite the reporting saying "file hashes" these almost certainly wouldn't be file hashes such as those most people will probably recognize from seeing MD5 checksums.

There's quite a number of image hashing ("perceptual image hashing") algorithms of varying complexity. This blog breaks down how a simple one operates.

Here's an idea, don't send nude photos. That'll stop the problem entirely.


I agree. In this day and age where the internet and anything digital is permanent, you'd have to be a first class idiot to send or allow a partner to take nude/sexy shots.

or you would have to feel it was worth the frankly minimal risk... or send pics that don't identify you in any way... or pick actual trustworthy people to exchange pics with instead of random f*ckboys...

being an idiot is not strictly required

The problem is people you think are trustworthy today, may not necessarily be tomorrow. We are talking about REVENGE porn. You have to assume at some point these people were in a relationship which is why the pics were taking in the first place. At some point the relationship fell apart and thus someone decided to spite the other person. Think about all the loving couples who wind up having bitter divorces.

I've been with my wife for 22 years. I'd never take nudes of her or send her nudes. While I certain don't expect our great relationship to change, you just never know. Second, given all the hacking, etc I just wouldn't want any of that stuff in digital format.

I know common sense ain't all that common anymore but I really don't feel sorry for people putting themselves in that situation.

well... your lead-in there is kind of why i DO feel sorry for people. we've all made the mistake of trusting someone who turned out to not be trustworthy. and it's a shame when things like that rebound on people. which is why i think a careful consideration of the risk should be made by anyone engaging in any such activity, definitely


not to mention that some pics that have been distributed in such a manner were not originally shared with anyone, but hacked from phones or personal storage. so i guess if you're particularly paranoid about it but want to do it anyway, polaroid is the way to go.

Everyone who's response is "JUST DON'T SEND NUDES"... Frankly, you sound ancient.

- 99% of humans under the age of 30 are sending nudes (or they genuinely can't find anybody who wants to see theirs).

- If you have a son/daughter 15+, I have some bad news for you. There are probably nudes and they are out there in cyberspace.

- This story is still hilarious, because Apple, Google, Facebook, and Snapchat already have access to all of their hundreds of millions of customers' photos. If it was ever in their financial interest to do so, they'd share them with the world. If they ever got truly hacked, the nudes are fair game.


Basically, it's far too late to be concerned with facebook storing nudes in a database. This is probably safer than letting your teenager own a cell phone (no, really. You're delusional if you think your son/daughter is a special snowflake that isn't sending dirties
)

99% of people are idiots... or they don't mind eventually sharing their goods with guys fapping.

Look, I don't really care what people do in their bedrooms. If taking pictures and videos turns them on, then more power to them. I'm just saying you can't then turn around and be mad when your private stuff finds it way on to Xhamster or some other site by a jilted lover or a random hack.

I think Mark Zuckerberg is just a pervert. It's just a scheme for him to collect nudes.

But seriously I really don't think this will go very far at all. Seems like a horrible idea.
