Facebook user data exposed on cloud servers
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.
