Face­book user data ex­posed on cloud servers

The Tribune (SLO) - - Insight -

Se­cu­rity re­searchers have un­cov­ered more in­stances of Face­book user data be­ing pub­licly ex­posed on the in­ter­net.

The re­searchers from the firm UpGuard said in a blog post Wed­nes­day that the data, which in­cluded user names and pass­words, came from two dif­fer­ent Face­book apps that stored their data pub­licly on Ama­zon’s cloud ser­vices. Face­book said the databases have been taken down.

The databases were from Cul­tura Colec­tiva, which in­cluded more than 540 mil­lion records – such as user com­ments and likes – and from an app called At the Pool.
