Facebook leaks are a lot leakier than Facebook is letting on
Remember last week, when Naked Security et al. told you that Facebook leaked email addresses and phone numbers for 6 million users, but that it was really kind of a modest leak, given that it's a billion-user service?
OK, scratch the "modest" part.
The researchers who originally found out that Facebook is actually creating secret dossiers for users are now saying the numbers don't quite match up.
The number of affected users Facebook noted in a posting on its security blog is far less than what they themselves found, and Facebook is also "hoarding non-user contact information - seen when it was also shared and exposed in the leak," writes ZDNet's Violet Blue.
