Facebook Announces Another Security Breach

Facebook announced today that there was an attack on the network that exposed nearly 50 million users’ personal information.

The company claims that the attackers exploited a bug in their site’s “View as” feature.
Facebook discovered the breach earlier this week, and has since patched the issue and has said that there is no need to change passwords over this incident.

Facebook did have to forcefully log out of 90 million Facebook accounts, a common safety measure taken when accounts have been compromised.
