[Unfollo] Hackers Pilfered Sensitive Data From Over 30 Million Facebook Accounts... Extensive On 14M+

Spotted this on the frontpage of Reddit, had to share. Zuckerberg is going to sweep it under the rug, and get away with it (again).

Quote:
Facebook has repeatedly told journalists and the public that the damage is so far contained and that it is not “in the wild” or being sold / traded on the Internet or the Dark Web. This is not something Facebook can claim, as reported on by Crypto Globe. The accounts were openly being sold on the dark web marketplace Dream Market, available for anyone with modicum of tech skills to purchase with Bitcoin (BTC & BTH) or Monero (XMR). According to one analyst, the accounts and sensitive user data is worth between $150 million and $600 million on the black market.

If people weren't so naive this wouldn't be an issue. Putting everything online is not a matter of if but when it gets taken.

Only have themselves to blame.

Wait, how is this the user's to blame? You don't think these hacks are happening as we speak on every system you use? Hint, hint, these cyber attacks are happening everywhere we speak. They attack intentionally to bring down their defence systems so that malware can be injected.

These hackers don't care about getting caught or jailed. To them, they don't care about what damage they cause because to them, they have nothing to loose but a lot to gain by doing damage.

This is the 21st century warfare. These people don't need to leave their premise to do damage.

If you think that this is the only leak that has happened, you aren't opening your eyes then. There are 100s if not thousands of leaks and breakins that happen just like how cars get broken into, system get broken into without your knowledge.

I didn't know FB was every supposed to be secure. It had so many holes over the years that even average Joe could exploit.
