    Another Facebook leak. I was thinking that I could do something cool with this dump but I can't find where (If anywhere) it's hosted. If anyone can find a torrent or download link, please reply here.

    Original article: https://techcrunch.com/2019/09/04/facebook-phone-numbers-exposed/

    "The exposed server contained more than 419 million records over several databases on users across geographies, including 133 million records on U.S.-based Facebook users, 18 million records of users in the U.K., and another with more than 50 million records on users in Vietnam."

    "Each record contained a user’s unique Facebook ID and the phone number listed on the account. A user’s Facebook ID is typically a long, unique and public number associated with their account, which can be easily used to discern an account’s username."
     
  2. Just another reason why my real information is never stored on any of these sites.

    Of those 419MM phone numbers, 300MM are from fake accounts used to game FB.
