“Facebook privacy breach: Hundreds of millions of users’ phone numbers exposed”

“Hundreds of millions of phone numbers linked to Facebook accounts were left exposed on an unprotected server in the latest massive security breach to plague the embattled tech giant.

Up to 419 million phone numbers were stored on a database housed on multiple servers including the numbers of an estimated 133 million US-based users alone. The revelation comes just weeks after Facebook was slapped with a record $5 billion fine by the US Federal Trade Commission for violating users’ privacy rights.”
