Πληροφορίες από 267 εκατομμύρια χρήστες του Facebook διαρρεύσαν στο διαδίκτυο και τώρα μπορούν να κατέβουν από ένα hacking forum.
The database includes user IDs, phone numbers and their names, such as he says Comparitech and security researcher Bob Diachenko. This information was uploaded to a public server that was accessible to anyone without a password or other authentication method.
The data was first recorded on December 4, while on December 12 all the information was uploaded to a hacking forum. Two days later, the security investigator reported the incident to the ISP owned by the server's IP address and on December 19 the database went offline.
However, because many have downloaded many copies of the database, they continue to circulate as they have been uploaded to other servers. So the risk for the future spam and Phishing is high, according to researchers.
Μέχρι σήμερα δεν γνωρίζουμε πώς διαρρέουν οι πληροφορίες η Diachenko πιστεύει ότι τα δεδομένα έχουν κλαπεί από κάποιο API του Facebook πριν το κοινωνικό δίκτυο προσθέσει την επαλήθευση με κάποιο τηλεφωνικό αριθμό το 2018.
The security investigator believes that the hack was carried out by a hacker living in Vietnam, but has not yet provided evidence.
