Face­book hack was wide­spread

The Times-Tribune - - NATION & WORLD -

Face­book says hack­ers ac­cessed a wide swath of in­for­ma­tion — rang­ing from emails and phone num­bers to more per­sonal de­tails like sites vis­ited and places checked into — from mil­lions of ac­counts as part of a se­cu­rity breach the com­pany dis­closed two weeks ago.

Twenty-nine mil­lion ac­counts had some form of in­for­ma­tion stolen. Orig­i­nally Face­book said 50 mil­lion ac­counts were af­fected, but that it didn’t know if they had been mis­used. The com­pany said Fri­day there’s no ev­i­dence the in­ci­dent is re­lated to midterm elec­tions.
