Yeah, Bug Zuck – and whoever stole your fucking account.
While no one seems to have accused Russia of being behind this latest haxoring, I’ll just go ahead and say it: the Ruskies are definitely guilty here.
I don’t have any evidence for it, but neither will the people who’ll make the same claim later – I just want to be ahead of the curve.
Are TDK memes cringe now? Not if you post them ironically.
This morning, Facebook disclosed a widespread security flaw that could have allowed hackers or other malicious third parties to access an affected user’s account by gleaning their security token. The flaw affected as many as 50 million people, and Facebook says it’s forcibly making around 90 million users log back into their accounts in full today to be safe. The company says that’s because in addition to the impacted accounts, around 40 million additional people simply used the exploitable feature since the exploit was active starting in July of 2017.
So, this “hacking” has been ongoing for over a year now. Who knows what kind of information these pesky Muscovites have got their hands onto.
Let’s just hope they haven’t analysed the accounts of furries and SJWs and extrapolated their opinions of Americans from that.
The world must be purged from this evil.
It also says it’s fixed the issue and alerted law enforcement, indicating that this is not an engineering mistake, but a purposeful exploit discovered and used by some third-party organization or hacker. The company says its engineering team was made aware of the issue on September 25th, but Guy Rosen, Facebook’s vice president of product management, says it’s not clear whether accounts were compromised, when the issue was exploited, or who might have been behind the attack.
>not blaming Russia automatically
Lol, what a cuck. Does he not know that this is the current year? All hacks of hacking are done by Russia – because of anonymous sources and “digital fingerprints” or whatever.
“On Tuesday, we discovered that an attacker exploited a technical vulnerability to steal access tokens that would allow them to log into about 50 million people’s accounts on Facebook,” wrote CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a post to his personal Facebook page. “We do not yet know whether these accounts were misused but we are continuing to look into this and will update when we learn more.”
The flaw could have let someone exploit the “View As” feature, which lets you view your own profile as it appears to another user or to the public, as a way of evaluating your specific sharing settings. However, it appears that the feature inadvertently exposed Facebook security tokens when someone selected a profile as the desired View As target. That would let someone gain access to the person’s account. Facebook access tokens are the digital keys that allow mobile users to log in to their accounts without having to retype their passwords.
Wait, didn’t Facebook say this wasn’t an “engineering mistake” just two paragraphs earlier? Because that sounds like a pretty major engineering mistake to me.
With full access to a user’s account, the attackers could have used any third-party app that was logged in via Facebook, the company said late Friday.
So basically, the Russians have all our Tinder accounts.
At any time now, 50 million Tinder profiles will have their pics changed to glorious Russian slavmasters.
Nothing wrong with that tbh.
It’d be a huge improvement tbh.
If your profile doesn’t already look like this, you’re probably a cuck anyway. This is how you pull the chicks.
But seriously, this is a pretty huge attack. Many of you readers probably received emails from Facebook telling you that someone logged into your accounts, – I know I did, even though I never even use it.
This is just another thing piling on to Facebook, which is already feeling the pressure from all the recent bad publicity.
I hope this Jew company goes under as soon as possible.
