Facebook :facebook: – 419+ million phone numbers found online:

– each record contained a unique Facebook ID; some records listed the user's name, gender, and location by country
– Facebook: "This data set is old and appears to have information obtained before we made changes last year to remove people’s ability to find others using their phone numbers"

@infosechandbook "Trust us. That was in the past. There are no problems anymore.

This was the only issue, and it was obviously caused by people abusing the system we built for the benefit of all users."

Oh, oh, and besides it is illegal to get access to this data, thus, we are safe...

Hush now, baby, baby, don't you cry
Mamma's gonna check out all your girlfriends for you
Mamma won't let anyone dirty get through
Mamma's gonna wait up until you get in
Mamma will always find out where you've been
Mamma's gonna keep baby healthy and clean
Ooooh, babe
Ooooh, babe
Ooh, babe
You'll always be baby to me

(From the song "Mother", by Pink Floyd, 1979)

@infosechandbook "don't worry, all 419 million people already changed their phone"
