Cambridge Analytica Shuts Down After Facebook Data Leak


We all know very well that the responsibility of the entire Facebook scandal and the data that has been accessed is in the hands of a single company, yes, of course, Cambridge Analytica. However, now according to the latest reports, the best-known company of recent times, of course, Cambridge Analytica shuts down after the Facebook data leak.

Cambridge Analytica Shuts Down After Facebook Data Leak

The responsibility of the entire Facebook scandal and the data that has been accessed is in the hands of a single company, Cambridge Analytica. It was the company who bought and analyzed the data of the users of Facebook and that maintained them even after being ordered its elimination.
Given this responsibility, it was only natural that the company should be under scrutiny and evaluation. It was precisely this movement that has now led to its closure.

The inevitable end of Cambridge Analytica

Cambridge Analytica, the best-known company of recent times gathered all its employees and, in a conference call, announced its future.
According to their managers, the closure of Cambridge Analytica was inevitable, since its association with the Facebook scandal was undermining the company.

The blame was pointed to Facebook

Associated with this came the loss of customers and the discredit of Cambridge Analytica, which made a possible change of the company impractical and even irrelevant.

“Despite Cambridge Analytica’s unwavering confidence that its employees have acted ethically and lawfully, which is now fully supported by Mr. Malins’ report, the siege of media coverage has driven away virtually all of the Company’s customers and suppliers. As a result, it has been determined that it is no longer viable to continue operating the business, which left Cambridge Analytica with no realistic alternative to placing the Company into administration.”

It is thus inevitable that the end of the company, after the work it did for the campaign of Donald Trump, always based on the data it collected from the social network giant Facebook.

According to the latest data, Cambridge Analytica will not be limited to the social network giant Facebook, but also obtained data from Twitter users, always with the same purposes.

In the published press release, Cambridge Analytica continues to insist on its innocence and try to show that there has not yet been any investigation that has proven the company’s guilt in any suit.

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)

Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.

What Is Defensive Programming ?

Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed. – WikiPedia


Introduction Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed.
Advantages Defensive programming is an approach to improve software and source code, in terms of:
General qualityMaking the source code comprehensibleMaking the software behave in a predictable mannerDrawback Overly defensive programming, however, may safeguard against errors that will never be encountered, thus incurring run-time and maintenance costs. There is also the risk that the code traps or prevents too many exceptions, potentially resulting i…
