Check whether your data has been captured at latest Facebook data leak
Hackers captured data from 30 million Facebook users in September. The tech company has now issued an update that allows users to check whether they have been the victim of the data breach.
You can check it via the Facebook help center. To check if hackers had access to your data, you have to be logged in. At the bottom of the message you will receive a message whether or not it has been the case.
According to Facebook, which cooperates with the FBI to track down the hackers, the leak was due to three errors in the software. They ensured that the criminals could gain access to stored passwords. This enabled them to take over user accounts.
Approximately 15 million duped users took names and contact information. A further 14 million Facebookers also involved more details in the profiles. At 1 million accounts were hacked but the hackers had no access to data.
