Criminals on the prowl- Be careful when you upload photos on social media platforms.Today I watched a YouTube channel and came to know about an app named 'Sulli deal' which was created by an unknown person and hosted on the open-source platform GitHub. The culprit stole photos of 83 women from Twitter without permission. These photos were then 'auctioned' on this app as 'as sullideal of the day'. Their picture, name and Twitter handle information was shared with the user. These women are prominent personalities like journalists, writers, social workers, pilots, political analysts etc
The Delhi Commission for Women has given a strong reaction against this whole issue. Commission chairperson Swati Maliwal has issued a notice to Delhi Police and has termed it as 'a serious cyber crime'.
The website was taken down though but before it was down many social media users had already taken screenshots of the same and shared and some of them informed the women concerned. Many women reacted on it and asked for punishment to culprits. Some women have issued an alert not to share their photographs on social media as their photograph may be misused in future also as things are not going to change.
Footnite: Coincidentally, all these women are Muslims.
