Hackers managed to grab names, account details, and telephone numbers from 553 million Facebook users, and now they’ve published all that data on the web. Yikes. I’m shocked at the scope but not the source.
If you have a Facebook account, now is the time to be on alert for scammy phone calls from people who will try and social engineer their way into your credit card numbers and bank accounts. There is already a scam where they call and claim to be the IRS and need “immediate payment to avoid criminal prosecution”. I’m sure they’ll come up with even more dreadful ways to abuse this treasure trove of data.
