Yesterday we witnessed the enormous problems of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, but the lack of access to one of the largest social networking sites brought much more serious consequences. Hackers confirmed the seizure of more than 1.5 billion private user data, and the value of Mark Zuckerberg’s assets was reduced by several billion dollars.
Monday was not the best day for many social media users – as a result of the failure, the most popular social networks did not work , which had a large impact on Facebook’s market value. The corporation’s shares fell by about 5% and, as the Bloomberg agency points out, this also contributed to a decrease in Mark Zuckerberg’s wealth. The CEO lost about $ 7 billion in hours.
However, this is not the end of problems. It turns out that over 1.5 billion private user data went on sale – hackers have stolen detailed information about people using the portal and are now selling it on the forum. You will have to pay $ 5,000 for 1 million account information, so the whole thing will cost up to $ 7.5 million.
The indicated data includes names and surnames, e-mail addresses, locations, gender, telephone numbers and user names. According to the information provided, the stolen details do not include passwords.
