The leaked details include the name, their Facebook ID, phone number, gender, and other details like location, education, relationship status, employment, etc if provided. These details are so sensitive that, threat actors can now use this dump to perform impersonation attacks.
Also, they may try to target specific individuals with phishing pages to obtain more details like passwords, which in turn can be used for other attacks. The database was divided into several individual records based on countries. And when checked into the US database worth 32 million records, it included the personal phone number of Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.
The data was claimed to be an old one from 2019, where a hacker obtained by exploited a now-patched vulnerability in Facebook’s Add Friend feature.
