Major technology companies have been duped into providing sensitive personal information about their customers in response to fraudulent legal requests, and the data has been used to harass and even sexually extort minors, according to four federal law enforcement officials and two industry investigators. The companies that have complied with the bogus requests include Meta Platforms Inc., Apple Inc., Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Snap Inc., Twitter Inc. and Discord Inc., according to three of the people. All of the people requested anonymity to speak frankly about the devious new brand of online crime that involves underage victims.

¿Qué clase de ineptos trabajan en estas empresas? O mejor dicho, ¿alguna empresa se toma en serio la privacidad de sus usuarios? Me cuesta aceptar que sea un fallo que se pueda tener, como si fueran empresas faltas de recursos.
