Breaking; Facebook Exposes Tens of million User's Passwords- Change your Passwords Now.'Experts Warns.






How to find out if your Facebook data was part of the Cambridge Analytica breach
Why? Because the plain-text could have been accessed by thousands of Facebook employees who could theoretically hack into users' accounts - with passwords available stretching back to accounts created in 2012.
Speaking of the bug, Pedro Canahuati, Facebook’s vice president of engineering, security, and privacy wrote in a statement:
"As part of a routine security review in January, we found that some user passwords were being stored in a readable format within our internal data storage systems. Our login systems are designed to mask passwords using techniques that make them unreadable. To be clear, these passwords were never visible to anyone outside of Facebook and we have found no evidence to
                 date that anyone internally abused or improperly accessed them."
He went on to add that Facebook has now corrected the password bug, and will notify the tens of millions of users that their passwords may have been exposed.
