533 Million Facebook Users Have Their Data Leaked Online

  • A low-level hacking forum published the personal data of over 533 million Facebook users on Saturday.
  • Business Insider says data leaked included Facebook IDs, full names, locations, birthdates, bios, phone numbers and even email addresses.
  • Security researcher Alon Gal wrote that he saw the data leaked in January, adding that these intruders took advantage of a data security flaw Facebook fixed in August 2019. Now, he says Telegram users can actually pay to see all that data from Facebook's leak.  
  • Around 32 million Americans are affected by this personal data leak.
  • Business Insider says if you're fresh to Facebook you may be okay. Again, that's only "maybe."
