Personal data of more than 533 million Facebook users leaked to the network

According to Business Insider, the personal data of users of the social network from 106 countries, including 32 million accounts of residents of the United States and 11 million of the United Kingdom, as well as about 10 million Russians, were in the public domain. The forum ended up with the full names of users, their location, dates of birth, biographies, mobile numbers and, in some cases, email addresses.

“A database of this size, containing such personal information as the phone numbers of a large number of Facebook users, will definitely lead attackers to use this data to launch hacker attacks”, – said cybercrime expert Elon Gal.

According to the portal Business Insider, Facebook declined to comment on the situation.
