Secret surveillance software created by a former Israeli intelligence officer is harvesting Facebook photos.

The firm behind it is taking profile images from the social network, YouTube and other sites to build a huge facial recognition database.

Its creators say the software could lead to the identification of terror suspects, captured in promotional and other material posted online.

News of the controversial service is causing alarm among privacy activists as Facebook scrambles to deal with its ongoing data scandal.
