    Facebook screwed again, about six millions user's contact information (email , phone number) was exposed.
    Read the full story and the worst part is that bug was discovered by a programer who didn't even work for FB. I wonder how many programers out there would have had their hands on the data and for how long they must have been using it.

    It's not all about being hacked buddy, The programmer also can sell your data to a marketer and get the money for it ! If this is happened looks like you will get a massive spam action :p

    the people who have two factor verification cannot be hacked my friend, everytime you log in there is a code sent to your mobile btw my password is also super duper strong so no way.

    6 million users' data had been exposed, 5,900,000 of them are probably of fake accounts, bots made etc. :p

    I wonder how much money did Facebook pay to the programmer who found the bug. Great programmer.

    Somebody was able to hack into any account via a cell phone. I don't know exactly how the two factor verification works when you're on a cell phone - do you get an email then? If not it looks like that was successfully hacked then..
