facebook data leak 2021 : Data of 533 million Facebook users including phone numbers, Facebook IDs, full names, birth dates and other information are posted online. The data dump was Tweeted by Alon Gal, CTO of security firm Hudson Rock. Gal posted an inventory of affected users by country. consistent with his list, the US had 32.3 million affected users and UK had 11.5 million. the info was accessed via a Telegram bot.
Other data points within the posting included gender, location and job status. Catalin Cimpanu, at The Record, also reported that he reviewed samples of the leaked data and Facebook confirmed.
The data is reportedly choppy into download packages by country. With the Facebook data call at the general public it’s safe to expect it to be used for cybercrime
A few takeaways:
“The data is old” argument doesn’t delay . Facebook said the info was was collected in 2019 and therefore the company plugged the opening in August of that year. How often are phone numbers connected to Facebook changed? Not frequently if in the least . Other information that was published includes full names and birth dates. It’s unlikely that information changes either. it is also worth noting that two years old is pretty fresh in data time.
Look for the info to be combined with other scams. Daniel Markuson, digital privacy expert at NordVPN, said the private information remains a goldmine for scammers and may be combined with pandemic related cybercrimes.
This leak is simply another reminder to require care of your data hygiene. If you haven’t already improved your security posture with better passwords, multi-factor authentication and other tools it is time to urge rolling. and perhaps you should not readily share your data.
Facebook is probably going to face more scrutiny and therefore the timing isn’t so great. Yes, this data was poached in 2019, but lawmakers just love questioning Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg over data collection. Meanwhile, tech giants are under more scrutiny than ever.
