Security researchers from UpGuard have found more than 540 millionFacebook records exposed in a public database. "We are committed to working with the developers on our platform to protect people's data", the company added.
UpGuard noted that it also found a database backup for a Facebook-integrated app called "At the Pool", which contained passwords for 22,000 users of the app.
Though the firm speculates the passwords are not of Facebook, but "At the pool" account of users, people who tend to use the same passwords across their multiple social media accounts may have been exposed. "I would recommend any concerned user who has provided their email password to Facebook immediately change it and then submit a request to Facebook for a detailed accounting of precisely what data was accessed and how that data was used".
