267M Facebook Users’ Phone Numbers Exposed OnlineResearchers believe that criminals were able to obtain personal information for millions of Facebook users.
A database exposing the names, phone numbers and Facebook user IDs of millions of platform users was left unsecured on the web for nearly two weeks before it was removed.
Security researcher Bob Diachenko, who along with Comparitech discovered the unsecured Elasticsearch database, believe it belongs to a cybercriminal organization, as opposed to Facebook. Diachenko went to the internet service provider (ISP) managing the IP address of the server so that the access could be removed.
