Subject: Re: [FD] Access anyone's Facebook "profile picture" in full
 resolution regardless of the ACL restriction

Hi,

just a side note: a "non" public profile can be found on some public files.
For example, someone who has restricted its profile for friends only comments
on a fan page of a public product or something like that. In that case you
can't go to the profile itself, thus you won't see a "large" profile pic,
but you get the right url to use Bipins "trick" (remove the resize part).

This is, of course, still no big deal. The "problem" is the way the cdn works.
It stores fullsize pictures and allows your to hand out resized versions by
giving the right arguments to it. This, btw, seems also to work the other
way around: instead of removing the p160... stuff, you can also use bigger
numbers to "enlarge" the pic, at least it seems to work some times. So maybe
you can abuse this... like most of the other services like this.

Regards,
Darkman
