An Facebook Bug Displayed 6 Million Users Contact Informatio



Facebook had displayed 6 Million user Contact Information like phone numbers and email addresses to unauthorized viewers past year.Facebook reports an technical error in its archive of contact information collected from its 1.1 billion users worldwide.
As result of the technical error,Facebook users who downloaded contact data for their list of friends obtained additional information that they were not supposed to have.
Facebook’s security team was alerted to the bug last week and fixed it within 24 hours. But Facebook did not publicly acknowledge the bug until Friday afternoon, when it published an “important message” on its blog explaining the issue.
A Facebook spokesman said the delay was due to company procedure.”We currently have no evidence that this bug has been exploited maliciously and we have not received complaints from users or seen anomalous behaviour on the tool or site to suggest wrongdoing,” Facebook said on its blog.
While the privacy breach was limited, “it’s still something we’re upset and embarrassed by, and we’ll work doubly hard to make sure nothing like this happens again,” it added.
