SOCIAL: Facebook says hackers accessed 29 million accounts
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, Facebook announced Friday. Originally, Facebook said 50 million accounts were affected but that it didn’t know if they had been misused. Facebook plans to send messages to people whose accounts were hacked.
