Did Facebook’s Business Model Make the Company an Easier Target for Cybercriminals?
A new Facebook data breach reported over the weekend is apparently an old data breach. Security researchers generally believe Facebook when the social media giant says the data breach reported over the weekend was the same one addressed in 2019. But some argue that the situation showcases why Facebook must revisit how it handles and secures personal information.
According to many published reports, the personal information of some 533 million Facebook users from 106 countries were exposed. Facebook maintains that “this is old data that was previously reported on in 2019.”
