Thirty-five womens life photos were purchased for 19 yuan.
Photo Acquisition Information in Student Bar.
When I found out that my photos were used for lyrics, I was very angry, but I couldnt help it. Liu Qi (alias) said.
On Dec. 10, Liu Qi told reporters in the Beijing News that some people were using their own photographs to search for lyrics. A survey by Beijing News reporters found that a gray industrial chain has emerged, ranging from collecting and selling photographs to using them for various marketing purposes. Some people buy and sell all kinds of life photos and sets of pictures on the Internet. One shopkeeper said that some of the pictures were bought, while others were collected from microblogs. It only costs 19 yuan to spy on the mass photos of 35 strangers.
It is understood that most of these photos are used as advertising marketing, creating the illusion of prosperous business to attract customers, and some are used in worse pornographic services. Reporters used the purchased materials to test and found that in more than a dozen seconds of exploration, strangers can forge a female false account, input sensitive words are not shielded. Li Li, a doctor in a medical and aesthetic Institute who claims to be stationed in New Oxygen, said she was willing to buy a large number of such living photos at a price of 5 yuan per set.
Some lawyers believe that the lack of supervision of the platform allows the sale of photographs to find profit margins. The difficulty of safeguarding rights is a reality. If you want to protect your personal information, you have to start from the source. For the serious infringement of other peoples personal information, it is suggested to increase the illegal cost of illegal elements.
1. Buy 35 womens life photos at 19 yuan
On December 6, Liu Qians friend Zhang Wei (a pseudonym) slid into Liu Qians picture while using a software called Detection. When Zhang Wei told me about it, I was particularly surprised because I had never used probes at all. Liu Qian said.
Exploration is a location-based mobile social tool. Users can get to know people nearby by sliding left and right on probing. Goodbye left sliding, like right sliding.
Mobile phone screenshots provided by Liu Qian to reporters in the Beijing News show that the user who used Liu Qians photo to explore shows that the nickname is small, aged 23. She lives in Changan District of Shijiazhuang City and works in the medical and health industry. In order to find out who the other party is, Zhang Wei and this little chat. After a short chat, Xiao Xiao sent a micro-signal on his own initiative. On Wechat, Xiaoxiao means that it can provide paid services at the price of 800 at a time and 12 at a night.
Zhang Wei sent a screenshot of the video chat to Liu Qian. This little is indeed a woman, but who is it, Liu said, I dont know at all. According to Liu Qi, she has published these photos in her circle of friends.
This is not the first time that Liu Qi, a beautiful-looking woman, has been falsely photographed. In the past, in the strangers, Wechat, I have seen people use my head as a photograph. Liu Qi told the Beijing News, But when I went to ask them, they deleted me directly.
On the morning of Dec. 10, a reporter from the Beijing News searched for the little girl through the micro-signal provided by Liu Qian, whose photo was still used as a head image.
Threatening Hunter Security Experts told Beijing News that photo trading has become a mature gray industry chain, Liu Qi only saw downstream. There may be hundreds of similar photographs in the person who used them. They have a jargon calledset of pictures. Set price depends on the quality, but often very cheap, a few yuan can buy a set. According to the experts mentioned above, Liu Qis photos were falsely used probably because there were too many strangers in her circle of friends, or because they had been posted on other social platforms by friends.
New Beijing News reporter survey found that a domestic e-commerce platform input the words life picture set will come out of a series of product lists, one of which is called snake material shop attracted the attention of reporters. There are two treasures in the shop, both of which are personal life photos. The shopkeeper said he had 260 sets of resources in his hands.
After paying 19 yuan, the reporter extracted a 9.01 G compressed file containing 35 ladieslife photos and videos through the network link extraction code provided by the shopkeeper. The 35 women were numbered, and one of them had as many as 3,000 photos of her life.
The shopkeeper called the business a one-size-fits-all. Some of these pictures are purchased, others are from microblogs. As long as you spend 4 yuan to buy amicroblog album batch collector, you can get as many photos as you want. As for the use of these materials by his customers, the above-mentioned shopkeepers call them mostly for marketing purposes.
Threatening Hunter Safety Experts introduced to Beijing News reporters that the number of gray industry practitioners downstream using APP of this nature as cash realization is not small. Illegal elements will pretend to be beautiful women chatting up on these software, and then divert to other platforms to cheat red envelopes or other pornographic fraud. In fact, they bought Alipay accounts, WeChat accounts and even cash cards.
In addition, the experts also told the Beijing News that the photos collected will not be used only once. Driven by profits, a set of photos may be reused or even re-sold many times, and may be made into the headlines of some obscene videos to catch your eye.
2 Medical App has a case of buying a photo P.
New Beijing News reporter noticed that there are also similar purchase information of life photos on the Internet platforms such as Tieba. Student Bar wrote in a post, If a live self-timer happens, you can make money. Buy photos for a buyers show on the platform of New Oxygen for five yuan each, and buy ten photos for each person. If you are qualified, you can cooperate for a long time. In Qingdao Bar, someone called out the high price of 20 photos of the same people living for 100 yuan.
This seemingly good business aroused some studentsinterest. Some students expressed their willingness to try it to journalists of the Beijing News. You can make money by sending a few self-portraits. Why not?
Threat Hunter safety experts told reporters that in marketing, in order to create the illusion of thriving business to attract customers, people often buy some real life photos. The material purchased can be used after simple modification. In fact, many of the buyers shows and contrast maps that customers see are just simple palette and P maps.
Beijing News reporter contacted a photo buyer as a photo seller. A purchaser who claimed to be Li Li Li disclosed to reporters that she currently works as a chief physician in a medical and aesthetic institution based in New Oxygen. The photos purchased online will be made into cases and put on an APP named New Oxygen.
As for what is its so-called case, Li Li Li cited an example: For example, if we buy a picture of the armpit without hair removal, then our artists will use software toartificial hair removalfor it, and then make a contrast map before and after it. In the doctors page card of the organization, the reporter saw Li Lis doctors qualification card and doctors license, which were issued on December 18, 2013 and January 18, 2017, respectively. However, New Oxygen showed that Li Li had been employed for eight years.
You can rest assured that unlike other plastic surgery agencies, the faces that we buy will be mosaic and will never be recognized, Li said. Ive been working for almost a year and Ive never had an accident. Its absolutely reliable.
New Oxygen is a brand product of Beijing New Oxygen Technology Co., Ltd. Venus, founder and CEO of New Oxygen, said publicly in March this year that his company currently has 25 million users. The cooperative medical and aesthetic institutions cover more than 95% of the regular medical and aesthetic institutions in China, and have also been stationed in some medical and aesthetic institutions in Korea, Japan and Thailand. Last year, New Oxygen completed 6 billion Online transactions and accumulated 3.5 million real-person plastic diaries written by users themselves on the platform.
Tian Eye Check showed that there were 27 lawsuits involving the company, including 16 Disputes over the right to portrait. According to the Civil Judgment of the First Instance of the Dispute between Li Xiaolu and Beijing New Oxygen Technology Co., Ltd. in the Portrait Right published by the Judgment Documents Network, Xin Oxygen Co., Ltd. without Li Xiaolus consent and without evidence, published articles on its Wechat Public Number indicating or implying that many parts of Li Xiaolu had undergone plastic surgery, and used a large number of photos of Li Xiaolu in different periods as matching maps to attract people. Readers, to promote its APP and other purposes, not only infringed on Li Xiaolus right to portrait, but also infringed on Li Xiaolus right to reputation. Xin Oxygen Company has already identified its infringement in the court and decided to assume liability for compensation. Xin Oxygen Company will publish its judgment on its Wechat public number and continue to infringe on it. The subjective malice of infringement is obvious, so it should bear the responsibility for infringement.
Yesterday, New Oxygen responded to a reporter from the Beijing News that an investigation team would be set up to verify the cases of the resident agencies. Once the false cases were found, the case would be deleted immediately and punishment measures would be taken against the relevant agencies. New oxygen said that due to the huge amount of platform data and a large number of daily updates, manual audit can not guarantee 100% timely review. New oxygen will take a number of measures to deal with the copyright and authenticity of the case.
3. Platform audit loopholes, breed grey industry
Feng Haibo, a lawyer at Guohao Lawyer (Shijiazhuang) Firm, told the Beijing News, Behind the frequent infringements, besides the weak awareness of personal information protection, the lack of supervision is also a factor that can not be ignored. Feng Haibo said that the lack of platform supervision leaves room for illegal elements, and strict implementation of the real-name system is conducive to reducing the occurrence of information leakage incidents.
New Beijing News reporters registered on probes. On December 11, reporters randomly selected five photos and a video from the resources purchased above, and in a dozen seconds they created a female account. During the registration period, the reporter did not find any real-name authentication and other audit mechanisms. Within five minutes, 23 male users sent messages on their own initiative. During chat, many sensitive and sexual words were not blocked by exploratory software.
In the audit, what measures did the team take? Recently, Beijing News reporters repeatedly dialed their public telephone numbers and did not get in touch with them.
This year, strangers acquired probes by issuing shares and cash to probes. It is believed that mobile social networking has changed from the three kingdoms killing of Weixin, strangers and explorers to the two strongest rivals of Weixin and strangers. So, how about the strangers who have been exploring their homes? On December 13, a 14-year-old womans account was created on the strangers by a reporter from the Beijing News. No regulatory measures were found in the meantime.
Beijing News reporter noted that in the stranger user agreement shows that stranger technology will rely on personal information provided by users to determine whether the user is a minor. Any minor under 18 years of age who registers or uses this service shall obtain the written consent of his parents or his legal guardian in advance.
Reporters were not blocked when they posted dynamic messages of sensitive words through this 14-year-old stranger account. During the logon period of the reporter of the New Beijing News, he once browsed a dynamic news released by Mr. Meng (nickname). The content of the news was Follow me, go to whore.
At 8 p.m. on December 17, a reporter from the Beijing News found that accounts registered on strangers had been banned. A comment appeared under the dynamic with sensitive words: The user has been reported by many people and may be abnormal.
According to the 41st Statistical Report on the Development of Internet in China published by China Internet Information Center (CNNIC), as of December 2017, 22.9% of Internet users were aged 19 or younger, and 25.4% of them were middle school students. Many education experts expressed concern about this. Dai Rongxia, a senior teacher who has long been concerned about the education of primary and secondary school students, told the Beijing News that once a minor mistakenly enters, it is likely to have a very bad impact on physical and mental health.
Over 40% of respondents have experienced personal information disclosure
Dont know what to do is the most frequently quoted sentence by Liu Qi in an interview with a reporter from the Beijing News.
In this regard, Liu Junhai, director of the Institute of Commercial Law of the Peoples Congress, who has long been concerned about personal information protection, is also deeply touched. I think there are two ways to go, one is to take the road of administrative reporting, public security organs and other relevant departments should take appropriate administrative penalty measures; the other is to bring a lawsuit to the court and claim compensation. Liu Junhai told Xinjing News.
The difficulty of safeguarding rights is a common problem. There are two difficulties. One is that it is difficult to find the infringer and the other is that the awareness of personal information risk prevention is poor. Guohao Lawyer (Shijiazhuang) Firm lawyer Feng Haibo said.
Feng Haibo believes that the lack of supervision of the platform is also a profit margin for the sale of gray products. The increasing popularity of Internet applications has brought new challenges to personal information protection. Especially in recent years, infringement, fraud and other information crimes caused by the leakage of personal information are frequent. How to protect personal information has become a new topic.
China Consumer Association released the APP Personal Information Leakage Survey Report on August 29. The survey results show that the overall situation of personal information leakage is relatively serious, and 85.2% of respondents have encountered personal information leakage. If mobile app leads to personal information disclosure, the most worrying problem is that it is used to engage in fraud and theft activities, accounting for 70.5%. Secondly, 52.4% of them were sold or exchanged to third parties, 37.7% were harassed by sales advertisements and 6.6% were damaged by reputation.
The results show that the main ways to disclose personal information are to collect personal information without the consent of the operator, accounting for 62.2% of the total sample, and to deliberately disclose, sell or illegally provide personal information to others, accounting for about 60.6% of the total sample.
Lack of awareness of personal information security protection and inadequate supervision were the main reasons for personal information security problems in mobile APP, accounting for 64.0% and 57.3% respectively. Imperfect laws (39.3%), difficulty in obtaining evidence, high cost of defending rights (24.6%), weak awareness of defending rights (19.6%) and lack of self-discipline (18.0%) in the industry are also important reasons for personal information security problems in mobile APP. About one third of the respondents who leaked personal information chose to consider themselves unlucky. On the one hand, it may be based on the inability to cope with the choice, on the other hand, it may also be to cope with the status quo of acceptance after invalidation. If you want to protect your personal information, you have to start from the source. For serious infringement of other peoples personal information, Feng Haibo suggested that the cost of illegal elements should be increased. The Personal Information Protection Law, which is currently being enacted, is based on the existing law and combines the new characteristics of big data to provide more careful protection for personal information. Liu Junhai told the Beijing News, Personally, I think this law is worth looking forward to. Source: Author of New Beijing News: Li Daweis Responsible Editor: Ji Guojie_NBJ11143
