Abstract:
The Web 2.0 has been enhanced by the growth of social networks and massive access by the majority of Web users. Unprecedented amounts of information are shared today, thus producing new problems of scalability, integrity and availability of the information in the systems. New challenges are posed, on one hand to technicians in an attempt to make web systems more secure and reliable, and on the other hand to crackers, that seek to circumvent with varying motivates and use different attack vectors. The article will address on this duality of forces and will focus on the particular case of social networks.

Keywords: Web Security and Privacy, Social Networks, Vulnerabilities, Confidentiality, Access Control
