Data of one lakh Facebook users leaked, cyber security researchers gave shocking information

Cyber ​​security researchers have given information about a data leak. This data leak is said to include the data of Facebook users.

According to the latest report of IANS, this data leak includes the data of at least one lakh Facebook users. The data of all these Facebook users has surfaced on the breach forum.

The team of CyberPeace, a New Delhi-based non-profit organization, has alleged that data of 1,00,000 new users from Facebook has surfaced on the breach forum. CyberPeace has said that this tampered data includes full name, profile, email, phone number, and location information.

In fact, the leak of personal information of Facebook users will directly mean that these people can become victims of phishing attacks. Apart from this, cybercriminals can use the information of these people to commit some kind of crime.

According to the latest report, the people who leaked Facebook users' data have not yet been identified.

Facebook hasn't responded to CyberPeace's assertions. According to researchers, an investigation is underway to determine whether this intrusion was perpetrated by a cybercriminal cell or by someone involved in online virus activities.

According to cybersecurity experts, Facebook is incurring brand damage as a result of escalating data security worries. This undermines users' trust. This data leak underscores the present issues created by cyber threats in the digital sector.

According to researchers, this incident highlights the necessity for organisations to improve their cyber security procedures in order to protect consumers' data and maintain public trust.
