533 Million Facebook Users’ Data Leaked – Including 6.1 Million Indians.

Personal details such as phone numbers of around 6.1 million (61 lakh) Indians on Facebook have allegedly been leaked online and posted on hacking forums, according to a cybersecurity executive.

According to Alon Gal, co-founder and chief technical officer of cybersecurity firm Hudson Rock, personal data of 533 million Facebook users globally – including names, phone numbers and other details – was allegedly leaked online and posted for free on hacking forums.

“All 533,000,000 Facebook records were just leaked for free. This means that if you have a Facebook account, it is extremely likely the phone number used for the account was leaked,” Mr Gal has said in a tweet flagging the issue.
