TECH CRUNCH - Sep 5 - The exposed server contained ~419M records over several databases on users across geographies, including 133M records on U.S.-based Facebook users. The server wasn't protected with a password so anyone could find and access the database. Each record contained a user's Facebook ID and the phone number listed on the account. This is the latest security lapse involving Facebook data after the Cambridge Analytica scandal, which saw ~80M profiles scraped to help identify swing voters in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Facebook spokesperson Jay Nancarrow said the data had been scraped before Facebook cut off access to user phone numbers.
