Facebook finally talks about data breaches of 533 million users

Published

Representatives of Facebook have finally commented on the leak of personal data of more than half a billion users of the social network of the same name from 106 countries.

A company representative noted that the attackers did not receive this data now or even last year. The data was stolen even before September 2019, but only now was released on the Web. He added that the security vulnerability that led to the massive data breach was patched back in 2019.

Recall that a few days ago, after a large-scale leak on a hacker forum, the names, places and dates of birth, phone numbers and other personal data of 533 million users of the social network Facebook were published.

It is a mistake to think that a hack is not serious just because it does not contain passwords or other highly confidential data. It is also a mistake to say that the situation is not so bad just because it is old data. Moreover, phone numbers as a form of authentication scare me madly. Unfortunately, this is often used these days.

Zack Allen, head of cybersecurity company ZeroFox.

After the emergence of information about the leakage of data, it became known that among them were the data of the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg (Mark Zuckerberg).
