SO­CIAL: Face­book says hack­ers ac­cessed 29 mil­lion ac­counts

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - Business -

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.
