Another day and another Facebook data breach, this time it has been discovered that millions of Facebook records has been stored publicly on Amazon’s cloud servers.
The latest breach was discovered b security research firm UpGuard, these records could be accessed by anyone.
The UpGuard Cyber Risk team can now report that two more third-party developed Facebook app datasets have been found exposed to the public internet. One, originating from the Mexico-based media company Cultura Colectiva, weighs in at 146 gigabytes and contains over 540 million records detailing comments, likes, reactions, account names, FB IDs and more. This same type of collection, in similarly concentrated form, has been cause for concern in the recent past, given the potential uses of such data.
As yet there if no official statement from Facebook on their latest data breach, as soon as we get some more information, we will let you guys know.
