What happened at Facebook?


Friday, September 28, 2018 Facebook said that an attack on its computer network had affected the personal information of nearly 50 million users.

The attackers exploited the “View As” feature that allows users to see their Facebook page the way someone else would. This could allow the attackers to take over Facebook accounts. Facebook has fixed this issue and informed law enforcement. They also do not know if the affected accounts were misused or if user information was actually accessed.
