Facebook hacked: user messages are being sold

Private messages from 81.000 Facebook members are up for sale for 10 cents each through FBSaler. The hacked accounts appear to be from the underground forum BlackHatWorld.


In addition to private messages from 81.000 profiles, FBSaler also published από άλλους 176.000 λογαριασμούς, με διευθύνσεις ηλεκτρονικού and phone numbers.

The FBSaler Reported also to the BBC that they have total data from 120 millions of Facebook accounts, but without giving any proof.

However, according to the BBC, "the Russian service of the BBC contacted five Russian Facebook users, whose private messages were allegedly stolen and confirmed that they were theirs".

From the 120 million profiles FBSaler is reported to have, the 2,7 million accounts are owned by Russians.

Το Facebook από τη μεριά του δήλωσε στο BBC ότι τα συστήματά τους δεν έχουν παραβιαστεί, και ότι πιστεύουν ότι τα δεδομένα προέρχονται από browser.

“Έχουμε έρθει σε επαφή με τους κατασκευαστές περιηγητών για να διασφαλίσουμε ότι οι γνωστές κακόβουλες επεκτάσεις δεν είναι πλέον διαθέσιμες για στα store τους”, δήλωσε ο Guy Rosen του Facebook στο BBC.

We have also contacted the Authorities and are working with Russian services to close the site displaying information from Facebook accounts.

Facebook seems to be going through one endless crisis, starting from its scandal Cambridge Analytica and immediately after with one ασφαλείας που επηρέασε 50 million users in September.

Let's see if all this will have an impact on the profits of the next quarter.
