- Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s own personal information was among the details of 533 million Facebook users that leaked in a data breach, it has emerged.
- Facebook has now confirmed that the leaked data was obtained not by a hack, but by scraping the platform prior to September 2019. The company now says that an exploit was found in its contact importer, but the “specific issue that allowed them to scrape this data in 2019 no longer exists.”
- Facebook has not clarified exactly what personal information leaked about the 533 million users, and has only said that “the information did not include financial information, health information or passwords.”
