Looks like Facebook is now paying for an old breach

According to several articles out there, Facebook is now paying for their apparent mistake that allowed people to get access to phone numbers. While they fixed the vulnerability, hackers have now made the data from the 533 million breach which includes 32 million in the United States alone publically available.

Apparently, this breach occurred in 2019, and a telegram bot could accept a couple of bucks to have access to the data.

Now, you know where this is going, right? The actors can now call you or do anything they want with your phone number, so be aware of what is happening now.

Cyberscoop is one who has details on this latest facebook ordeal, so go read it. 533 million Facebook users’ personal data leaked online is the article.
