comment Are Facebook, Yahoo, Google, etc. hackable?
I completely agree. For some it's being paranoid, but it's the truth. Acting consequently may or may not be worthwhile, so many people are very optimistic about the security of their systems. Though, facebook was probably created for other reasons.

comment How can I share sensitive information with my team?
Set up an encrypted partition then, chroot your SFTP user on it. That is if you are afraid of the disk being removed and analyzed or the machine to be booted by someone else. Else, then you have to share the encrypted PGP file, and do as I told you before. To revoke decryption, simple don't send them the mail, those who receive the mail will get the attachment encrypted with their own public keys, so they will be the only one to be able to read it.

If you want a central DB and revoke access, look around openssh server. Add public keys to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys and remove the keys of unwanted users by hand. They can use sftp (winscp on windows) to access the files. You can add a comment to each public key in the file to remember the user associated with it. It's easy to implement and does just what you seem to want

comment How can I share sensitive information with my team?
I might have misunderstood you! If you want to revoke access, then each should have a private/public key pair. You send them the files with the mail client and it will use their associated public keys. If someone leaves the team, just don't send him the message and he won't be able to decipher it. I think it might be different as your situation seems very specific. These are generic guide lines, adapt them to fit your needs!

comment What lawful interception standards are used outside Europe?
As a side note, if you need to know, don't expect a standard to tell you everything. I doubt standard are followed all the time and assuming the worst case scenario is very important when talking about security (weakest link, bla bla). Would you mind explaining why you mind about this? Just curiosity?

comment Why would someone register a Facebook account with a stolen email address?
We could debate this for hours, there are obviously a great number of possibilities. My answer just tried to explain why would one possibly want to use another's email to register a facebook account. Let's not get off topic here.

comment What are these ip adresses my computer is connected and how do I block them if they are malicious?
+1 for CodeInChaos, I suggest you kill all programs which access the internet in a legitimate way before (firefox, piding, thunderbird, etc). The output will be cleared.

comment Why would someone register a Facebook account with a stolen email address?
Yes. Besides, how would you create an email address? You are asked to provide some information and you should stay careful to what data you expose (your browser leaks data, your IP, etc) without knowing. It's kind of an issue, it's stealthier to use someone else's mail account.

As a matter of fact, it does... That's unfortunate though.
