Data Leak is connected with the exposure of some data or vulnerability. Data leaks may be caused by users gaining unauthorized access to a website, by improper developed apps or services, or by flaws in security policies. The distinctive feature of a data leak is that it’s the data transmission from an internal source to an external one. Most incidents may even be unintentional and because of human error.
Facebook said that the reason for the recent data leakage of more than 530 million users was not a hacker breach of its systems. Attackers gained access to information by extracting data from web resources or so-called web scraping.
Users from 106 countries were affected, including 32 million profiles from the USA, 11 million from the UK, and 6 million from India. Facebook said this data was extracted using a vulnerability that the company patched in 2019.
Another data leak occurred on Facebook, the giant social media platform. This time, around 5,000 developers received the data of inactive users.
A new Zoom scandal occurred due to poor privacy. This time, 500,000 Zoom logins were leaked to a private Telegram account, and then accounts were redeemed by Cyble cybersecurity experts for $6,000.
Zoom is having more severe problems. About 530,000 accounts were sold for pennies, and some were even given away for free. Many companies, including Google, have barred employees from using the service.
