• Facebook blocks 90 million accounts, 50 million have stolen user info

    This is just breaking, but the best report I’ve seen is from the Washington Post.

    The company said as many as 90 million Facebook users — out of a total of 2.2 billion — will have to log back into their accounts as a result of the breach. Notifications will appear at the top of the Facebook news feed for the 50 million who were directly affected, executives said on a call with reporters.

    Sure to be a big topic over the weekend.

    UPDATE: Facebook’s official notification.

    UPDATE: From Brian Krebs:

    The company said it was just beginning its investigation, and that it doesn’t yet know some basic facts about the incident, such as whether these accounts were misused, if any private information was accessed, or who might be responsible for these attacks.
