You may have heard the disturbing news this weekend that more than 500 million Facebook users had their personal information leaked in a Facebook data breach, with the information posted online to a hacker site. Information leaked and posted included users’ name, location, birthday, email, phone number, and relationship status.

But you know what else was posted? Mark Zuckerberg’s name, location, birthday, email, phone number, and relationship status.

“In early 2020 a vulnerability that enabled seeing the phone number linked to every Facebook account was exploited, creating a database containing the information 533m users across all countries,” engineer Alon Gal wrote on Twitter. “It was severely under-reported and today the database became much more worrisome.”

“Few days ago a user created a Telegram bot allowing users to query the database for a low fee, enabling people to find the phone numbers linked to a very large portion of Facebook accounts,” he added. “This obviously has a huge impact on privacy.”

    Haha, yep… You wouldn’t give a strange your number for no reason. Then why give any real information to fb?
    A real social media site could careless what your name is or your phone number etc. They would only care about how you behave towards others. Well that was the case, then this zuzkerberg came along to take and resell all of your information.

    Yeah everyone’s gotta make money to stay afloat, but there are ethical ways to do that.
