Facebook Is Breached by Hackers, Putting 50 Million Users’ Data at Risk

Facebook said on Friday that an attack on its computer network had exposed the personal information of nearly 50 million users. The breach was discovered this week. The attackers exploited a feature in Facebook’s code that allowed them to take over user accounts. Early Friday, Facebook forced more than 90 million users to log out of their accounts, a common safety measure taken when accounts have been compromised.
