A BRIEF OF THE FACEBOOK’S DATA BREACH
Facebook's Data Breach

50 million people had their access tokens affected, and about 30 million of those actually had their tokens stolen. According to Facebook, the attackers first controlled a set of accounts.

These accounts were connected to Facebook friends. Then with an automated technique they were able to move from account to account.

From then they stole the access tokens of those friends, and for friends of those friends, and so on. That totaled about 400,000 people.

The Attackers stole the access tokens for about 30 million people by just accessing a portion of these 400,000 people’s lists of friends.

In formation from Facebook has it that the first 15 million people had their name and contact details (phone number, email, or both, depending on what people had on their profiles) accessed by the attackers.
