The Massive Facebook Hack Might Have Affected Users Other Apps
The Massive Facebook Hack Might Have Affected Users Other Apps. The hackers who could view Facebook accounts from 50 million users would also have access to other apps that were logged in with Facebook accounts.
In a conversation with journalists, Facebook CEO Guy Rosen said that hackers could also have access to user accounts on other apps and websites, reports TechCrunch on Saturday, among other things. Users can also use their Facebook account to log in to services and sites, such as Instagram.
Facebook announced on Friday that data from 50 million users could be seen after an attack on a computer network. No passwords were captured, but affected users were logged out as a precaution.
It is not known whether hackers have misused accounts and what information attackers have been given precise access to. The identity of the hackers is also unknown. The leak is a poem according to Facebook.
It is now known that lawsuits against Facebook have been filed in the US states of California and Virginia, writes The Verge. The prosecutors claim that the leak led to significantly more chance of identity theft.
The people who filed lawsuits demand compensation from the company, among other things.
