Mark Zuckerberg resisting British lawmakers' call to testify despite summons threat

An Update on Our App Investigation and Audit | Facebook Newsroom

Alongside its critique of Facebook, the committee is publishing Facebook's response to its letter which was sent earlier this year following the Cambridge Analytica scandal and put 39 outstanding questions to the company.

Data researcher Christopher Wylie will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee this morning for a hearing on data privacy.

The company has investigated "thousands of apps" and "around 200 have been suspended", Ime Archibong, vice president of Product Partnerships at Facebook, wrote in a blog post.

Mark Zuckerberg will appear before the EU Parliament in person to answer questions about Facebook's use of data.

The company came under scrutiny after reports that it had obtained Facebook users' information, saying it was for research but it was used for political purposes. The second phase is to conduct interviews, make requests for information by asking "a series of detailed questions about the app and the data it has access to", and perform an audit that may include an on-site inspection. "It will show people if they or their friends installed an app that misused data before 2015 - just as we did for Cambridge Analytica", the social networking firm said. In violation of the rules of Facebook, the data was transferred to a third party - Cambridge Analytica, founded by billionaire Robert Mercer.

Cambridge Analytica said earlier this month it was shutting down after losing clients and facing mounting legal fees resulting from reports the company harvested personal data about millions of Facebook users beginning in 2014. Such violations could carry sky-high fines.

A critical PGP flaw could expose your past emails
And because EFAIL relies on HTML-based emails, disabling HTML rendering is also advised for now. If some sources are to be believed, it could spell the end of email as a secure channel.

The European Parliament has requested Zuckerberg appear before the assembly a couple of times, and it appears he has finally agreed.

But the Facebook founder is rather happier to speak with the European Parliament, it would seem. The missive also contained details of 39 questions the committee believed had not been satisfactorily answered by the appearance in April of Facebook's chief technology officer, Mike Schroepfer.
