Hackers "leaked" the data of half a billion Facebook users

An unknown hacker has published the personal data of more than half a billion Facebook users from 106 countries in the public domain. This" drain " may be related to the January one, when the data of millions of users leaked to the Network.

This is reported by Business Insider.

The disclosed data includes phone numbers linked to the pages, full names, dates of birth, email addresses, and other information.

In general, the data of 533 million users was "merged".

32 million US users;
11 million from the UK;
6 million from India.

Facebook claims that the leaked data does not pose a threat, because it was obtained using a software vulnerability fixed in 2019. After that, users were asked to change their passwords.

Instagram Facebook was investigated by the European Union in October for possible leaks and insufficient protection of children's personal data on the social network Instagram.

It was also previously reported that hackers stole data on more than 10 million accounts on online hotel booking sites, including Booking.
