When looking for love or lust, there are literally hundreds of options on the internet to consider in your search, but maybe it’s time to kick the old dating model to the curb. The subscription fees and compatibility formulas are so dated and laborious. They match common factors and personality ratings, measuring unique personalities in an unrealistic manner. You meet date after date, maybe having a little fun, but, inevitably, you discover the dating agency is the only party in the relationship making out in this scenario. Burst out of that fixed model of finding partners, changing your focus and the dynamics of the search. Online dating isn’t a cookie cutter process, setting up dates, arranging events according to personality profiles. It’s a time of fun and exploration, discovering your partner under the unlikeliest of circumstances, and you should be able to be as naughty and flirty as you want without fitting some dating norm.

Drop the standard subscription model with a little help from Lustaman as we show you dating redefined, match-making with a unique twist. Instead of following guidelines set by some boring dating agency, set your own goals and lay out your own ideal date for your potential partner. Define what it is you’re after from the meeting, an evening of romance and flirtatious fun, or an activity weekend in the great outdoors, a fun night cooking together while listening to jazz, or a movie night watching the latest blockbuster. Dating has changed online, dismissing old conventions in favor of new, highly diversified notions where each individual is free to shape the meeting.

Attackers can use the “Covert Redirect” vulnerability in both open-source login systems to steal your data and redirect you to unsafe sites. Beware of links that ask you to log in through Facebook. The OAuth 2.0 and OpenID modules are vulnerable. Following in the steps of the OpenSSL vulnerability Heartbleed, another major flaw has been found in popular open-source security software. This time, the holes have been found in the login tools OAuth and OpenID, used by many websites and tech titans including Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and LinkedIn, among others.

Wang Jing, a Ph.D student at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, discovered that the serious vulnerability “Covert Redirect” flaw can masquerade as a login popup based on an affected site’s domain. Covert Redirect is based on a well-known exploit parameter.

For example, someone clicking on a malicious phishing link will get a popup window in Facebook, asking them to authorize the app. Instead of using a fake domain name that’s similar to trick users, the Covert Redirect flaw uses the real site address for authentication. If a user chooses to authorize the login, personal data (depending on what is being asked for) will be released to the attacker instead of to the legitimate website. This can range from email addresses, birth dates, contact lists and possibly even control of the account. Regardless of whether the victim chooses to authorize the app, they will then get redirected to a website of the attacker’s choice, which could potentially further compromise the victim.

Wang says he has already contacted Facebook and has reported the flaw, but was told that the company “understood the risks associated with OAuth 2.0,” and that “short of forcing every single application on the platform to use a whitelist,” fixing this bug was “something that can’t be accomplished in the short term.”
