533 million Facebook user records dumped online — what you need to know

Some 533 million Facebook user records are being offered up for free on an online hacking forum, multiple sources report.

The good news, if there can be any in this situation, is that the data is old and has been available to cybercriminals for at least two years. Facebook said in statements to The Record and Bleeping Computer that it was all data that had been scraped — copied from the Facebook website without Facebook’s permission — before a loophole was closed in 2019.
