Top British Spy Life Put on Facebook by Wife… Cover Blown?

London — You need to be careful what you post to social networking sites. The Mail, a London newspaper, reported that the new head of the British Spy agency (Sir John Sawers ) the Secret Intelligence Service cover was blown on Facebook. The SIS, more popularly known as MI6, is England’s intelligence gathering organization.

The SIS promptly took the information down after inquiries were made by The Mail; however, the newspaper printed the information and pictures in a two page spread.

The Mail reported, “The new head of MI6 has been left exposed by a major personal security breach after his wife published intimate photographs and family details on the Facebook website.”

“But his wife’s entries on the social networking site have exposed potentially compromising details about where they live and work, who their friends are and where they spend their holidays.”

“Amazingly, she had put virtually no privacy protection on her account, making it visible to any of the site’s 200million users who chose to be in the open-access ‘London’ network – regardless of where in the world they actually were.”
