        533 million Facebook users’ phone numbers and personal data have been leaked

        The data includes phone numbers, full names, location, email address, and biographical information.

        A user in a low level hacking forum on Saturday published the phone numbers and personal data of hundreds of millions of Facebook users for free online.

        The exposed data includes personal information of over 533 million Facebook users from 106 countries, including over 32 million records on users in the US, 11 million on users in the UK, and 6 million on users in India. It includes their phone numbers, Facebook IDs, full names, locations, birthdates, bios, and — in some cases — email addresses…

        The data is couple of years old but still valuable for cybercriminals.

        It was just a matter of time. Now watch Muckelrberg minimize it, field a trivial fine that amounts to .001% of his net worth, and have his hirelings roller-skate down the halls of Congress, tossing bags of money at each door.

        Everyone get lathered, then Rinse and Repeat.

        But … THEY MUST HAVE FACEBOOK.

        Man, I am so glad I never had anything to do with that garbage.
