Facebook is alerting 6 million of its users that their e-mails or phone numbers were inadvertently shared with other members.
The social network said Friday that it has discovered and patched a bug in its "Download Your Information" tool that unintentionally exposed some members' contact details. The bug was reported earlier this month through the company's White Hat program, which rewards security researchers for reporting vulnerabilities. The bug was fixed within 24 hours, a company spokesperson told CNET.
