Facebook: 50 Million Accounts Hacked in Security Breach

Yet another security beach has happened and once again millions of users, and their data are vulnerable to hackers.

How Facebook Brech Happened?

This hack was one of the more sophisticated breaches. The hacker or hackers were able to access users photos, data, connections and more.  As stated by Mark Zuckenburg "The attackers did try to query our APIs - Access, Profile, Information fields, like names gender, hometown, etc. - but we do not yet know if any private information was accessed that way." This hack is notable because the size and scope of data harvested are nearly unprecedented.

What can you do to Protect Your Facebook Data?

  • First, start by changing your password, make sure it is unique and not used across multiple websites.
  • Secondly, check which apps you use your facebook to login to, if the app is no longer needed to remove any Facebook login access it may have.
  • Third, use to two-factor-authentication. Two-factor-authentication makes logging into someone's website much more difficult.
