Facebook’s latest data breach feeds a list of HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of its privacy abuse victims
Mark Zuckerberg’s mission to rehabilitate Facebook’s image is not going well. Since announcing a revamped “privacy-focused vision” for the company just months ago, it has faced multiple new and major security breaches.

The latest has seen up to 419 million users’ phone numbers exposed on an unprotected server and comes only weeks after the company was hit with a record $5 billion fine by the US Federal Trade Commission. The FEC fine followed a probe into the Cambridge Analytica data-sharing scandal, which was the lightbulb moment for many in gauging the true scale of Facebook’s privacy problem.

Recent suspicions that Zuckerberg’s grand vision for a privacy-focused Facebook utopia were nothing more than an exercise in PR have been well and truly validated.
History of failure

Revealing his new privacy-centered agenda in March, Zuckerberg was responding to years’ worth of security scandals. The controversies are piling up so quickly now, that users barely have time to digest one before the next data breach is exposed.

Weeks after Zuckerberg laid out his new vision, it was revealed that millions of passwords dating back to 2012 were accessible in plain text by up to 20,000 employees. Facebook described it as a “glitch” to be fixed. Shortly after, we learned from the UpGuard security firm that data belonging to 540 million Facebook users was left exposed and publicly accessible by app developers. Facebook did take steps to reduce third-party access to data after the Cambridge Analytica debacle, but it seems Zuckerberg shut the door after the horse had bolted.
