facebook leaked database download : Information belonging to approximately 533 million Facebook users has leaked online in recent days, consistent with security researcher Alon Gal, raising concerns a few spike in scams targeting vulnerable Facebook users.
The data, which comes from people from over 100 countries, includes users’ phone numbers, email addresses, full names, birthdates and site , among other identifiers, consistent with Insider, which first reported the news. The dataset includes 32 million records for users within the U.S.
The existence of the leak was first reported by Motherboard in January. Facebook users’ personal data was available purchasable online then — criminals could pay a few of dollars to a Telegram bot so as to realize access to Facebook users’ phone numbers. Now, a suspected cybercriminal has posted the info to a hacking forum, freed from charge.
Facebook said during a comment that the knowledge leaked thanks to a vulnerability that had been fixed in 2019. “In 2019, we removed people’s ability to directly find others using their telephone number across both Facebook and Instagram – a function that would be exploited using sophisticated software code, to imitate Facebook and supply a telephone number to seek out which users it belonged to,” a Facebook spokesperson told CNN Business. Facebook didn’t immediately return CyberScoop’s request for comment.
Ireland’s Data Protection Commission said it’ll probe whether the info is indeed old, consistent with the BBC. The Federal Trade Commission, America’s consumer protection agency, declined to discuss whether it also would probe the matter.
The wide swath of individuals affected is raising concerns that scammers could use the knowledge to commit fraud. Criminals often scour the web for private data about targets in fraud schemes, but this leak places several important data points beat one place.
Hackers can use phone numbers within the leak, as an example , to run social engineering scams like SIM-swapping, during which they trick mobile carriers to transfer someone’s telephone number to their own device so as to hold out fraud, like gaining access to someone’s checking account , or resetting their email and social media accounts’ credentials. Thieves also can leverage the leak by cross-referencing data with other pieces of data contained in other stolen datasets to create a more complete profile of targets.
Troy Hunt has added the leaked email addresses into the breach database Have I Been Pwned, where users can check if their information has been leaked.
