540 million Facebook users data exposed by 3rd party app developers

The data in question has since been removed from Amazon’s servers. Security firm UpGuard found records from 540 million Facebook users exposed on AWS that had been uploaded by third-party app developers. Some of the data included personal information like user IDs and account name’s but also user activity such as liked posts, comments, etc.

Gee. I sure didn’t see this coming. I am shocked that Mark Zuckerberg would handle my data irresponsibly. It’s all so out of character.

Let's not forget: this isn't banking info or other confidential personal data, this is what we conciously submit to the public. The information was "leaked" the second the user hit post.
