A huge trove of hacked data from in excess of 500 million Facebook clients was made effectively available Saturday — including Mark Zuckerberg’s cellphone number, as indicated by one security expert.
The information was at first taken in January, after programmers abused a weakness identified with telephone numbers related with Facebook accounts, eventually making a monstrous database of private data.
On Saturday, the database turned out to be promptly open to those with fundamental data abilities after it was posted to a programmer gathering, as indicated by media.
Facebook excused the data as “very old” however security expert Dave Walker brought up the company’s own CEO was exploited in the hack.
“Regarding the #FacebookLeak, of the 533M people in the leak – the irony is that Mark Zuckerberg is regrettably included in the leak as well. If journalists are struggling to get a statement from @facebook, maybe just give him a call, from the tel in the leak?” he tweeted alongside a screenshot of Zuckerberg’s name and information with the phone number partially blacked out.
