Cybercriminal bot puts over 530 million Facebook users’ phone numbers on sale

A cybercriminal is selling access to a database of 533 million phone numbers of Facebook users and letting customers look up those numbers by using a bot on Telegram. Alon Gal, co-founder and CTO of cybersecurity firm Hudson Rock discovered this. The bot lets anyone find a user’s phone number with the user’s Facebook ID and a user’s FB ID from a phone number.

Thanks Facebook. Maybe a little more focus on protecting user privacy vs. your useless daily election updates and stifling free speech?

More propaganda to get rid of the ever so threatening privacy centric apps. 😱 Even if the issue here was facebooks own exploit, let’s blame the EVIL TELEGRAM. Down With Privacy!!

Facebook tracks their users apps history even when they aren't active on it. 🤔 Sounds like a security and privacy issue on Faceboo''s end.
