Facebook did not mention to its half a billion users that their accounts have been hacked and their personal details are out.
As per reports, phone numbers and other details were also got out from the database where users profiles are kept. This Tuesday, Facebook revealed that "malicious actors" got a hand at this database before September 2019 by "scrapping" accounts by misusing a feature known as synching contacts.
The company revealed that the social media team didn't know whom to notify and whom to not. It would create huge chaos.
Facebook's spokesperson also mentioned that it would be of no use to let the users know about the situation as they are incapable of fixing this issue. They said that they had stopped from getting more corrupted after identifying the problem.
Facebook further said that the information did not include financial data or health or passwords. But this breachment affected 530 million people.
