This article is related to the social ethical issue which is privacy. The problem arising from this issue is users can access other users personal information which they uploaded to the website just by changing their usernames. This also brings up privacy and anonymity issues too because other users can access other users without their permission. The admins has to re-arrange their privacy settings so others can’t access to the other users private folders or uploaded pictures etc. The other solution might be to store the datas in hardwares instead of storing them on a online server but this might be a problem too because if the hardware gets overloaded they can loose the data if they don’t have a back up disk. So I don’t really think there is a solution to database related issues. That article we read in class was written in 1967 and the problems were the same. Still after 45 years we have similar problems so there isn’t any good solution for database issues
