Facebook is in the news again, and, unfortunately for it, not for a very good reason. The social network is being hammered after it took down pages for some reputable sites, including Ars Technica and Redmond Pie. Although Facebook did receive letters saying these sites were violating the DMCA, many people are speaking out against the process that Facebook uses to handle the claims.

WebProNews spoke, specifically, with Chester Wisniewski, the Senior Security Advisor at Sophos, about the matter. Sophos believes that Facebook needs to verify the people making the accusations and also notify the people that are being accused about what content they are infringing upon.

Wisniewski said, “a little bit of a validation process might go a long way.” Do you agree?
