Facebook sued over Brexit campaign data breach

Campaign group Fair Vote U.K. announced Saturday that it is preparing a lawsuit against Facebook on behalf of users whose data was used by the tech giant without their consent during the Brexit referendum campaign. The suit follows the leak of an interim report on fake news from the culture, media and sport select committee that underlined the ease with which companies could harvest user data without consent.
