Facebook security breach exposes personal information of tens of millions of users

5 years ago
Now... to another black eye and PR disaster for Facebook.
The social media giant is reporting on a major security breach (a hack... ) that exposed the personal information of nearly 50 million Facebook users.
The company said Friday that attackers were able to exploit a security flaw in a feature known as "View As" to grab control of people's accounts.
The breach was discovered on Tuesday and Facebook says police have been alerted.
Facebook, which has more than two billion active monthly users,... would not say where in the world the 50 million users are.
