6.8M Facebook Users Private Photos Exposed

The Facebook bug allowed 1,500 apps built by 800+ developers to view unposted private photos.

Friday Facebook disclosed that a bug in the platform enabled third-party apps to access unpublished photos of millions of users.  

When your writing a new post and upload a photo but do not finish posting it Facebook will store it in the database as a draft. This gave the third party app creators access to these drafts. 

Facebook has seen many other breaches, enough is enough. I’m sure there will be a class action lawsuit. I believe the reputation of Facebook has been continually tarnished by security issues and users are deeply thinking about disabling  their accounts.
