Madrid, Jul 05, 2024 -Spanish prosecutors said Thursday that they were investigating Facebook owner Meta over suspicions it breached data-protection laws by using users’ data to train its AI programme.

Meta had already said last month it was suspending the use of such data for training its generative artificial intelligence service in the European Union, following complaints in 11 countries.

State prosecutors at Spain’s main national court said in a statement they had received “massive” numbers of complaints over the issue from users of Facebook and Instagram, another popular social media platform owned by Meta.

The users complained “that information shared in its products and services… is going to be used by Meta to develop and improve its AI”, the statement said.

It added that prosecutors were seeking to protect users’ “personal data” and would consult the Spanish data-protection authority about possible measures.

Information Security - InfoSec - Cyber Security - Firewall Providers Company in India













What is Firewall? A Firewall is a network security device that monitors and filters incoming and outgoing network traffic based on an organization's previously established security policies. At its most basic, a firewall is essentially the barrier that sits between a private internal network and the public Internet.


Secure your network at the gateway against threats such as intrusions, Viruses, Spyware, Worms, Trojans, Adware, Keyloggers, Malicious Mobile Code (MMC), and other dangerous applications for total protection in a convenient, affordable subscription-based service. Modern threats like web-based malware attacks, targeted attacks, application-layer attacks, and more have had a significantly negative effect on the threat landscape. In fact, more than 80% of all new malware and intrusion attempts are exploiting weaknesses in applications, as opposed to weaknesses in networking components and services. Stateful firewalls with simple packet filtering capabilities were efficient blocking unwanted applications as most applications met the port-protocol expectations. Administrators could promptly prevent an unsafe application from being accessed by users by blocking the associated ports and protocols.
