Facebook says security flaw in 50 million accounts let hackers take over profiles


Facebook said on Friday it found a security flaw in almost 50 million accounts that would allow hackers to take over people’s profiles, a potential additional blow to the social network’s record on privacy.

The company in a blog post said that someone had used the vulnerability to attack its network, although it did not know who was behind the attempt. Facebook said it had yet to determine whether any accounts were misused or if any information was improperly accessed.

Facebook did not say how many accounts had been taken over through the vulnerability.
