Facebook Says Hackers Accessed Data of 29 Million Users
« on: October 12, 2018, 05:01:05 PM »
So I guess 29m is ok as long as it's not 50m.   :ohmy:

Facebook said Friday that hackers accessed personal data of 29 million users in a breach at the world's leading social network disclosed late last month.

 The company had originally said up to 50 million accounts were affected in a cyberattack that exploited a trio of software flaws to steal "access tokens" that enable people to automatically log back onto the platform.

 "We now know that fewer people were impacted than we originally thought," Facebook vice president of product management Guy Rosen said in a conference call updating the investigation.

I deleted my facebook about six months ago and I have yet to regret my decision. Their website has been hit with some awful hacks in recent years, losing peoples confidence in the privacy of their data. Not to mention their extreme left-wing bias. I couldn't take it anymore. I had to purge myself of it. Next to go is Twitter.

I can't wait for Trump to dump Twitter.
