419M Facebook users accounts, phone numbers found on online database
889  Fox Business 

Records of more than 419 million Facebook accounts -- including phone numbers associated with the accounts -- were found online where anyone could have access to them, according to a recent report.

The records were found across several databases on a server that was not protected by a password, TechCrunch reported Wednesday. The information that was posted for each account included the users’ IDs and phone numbers associated with the account. Some of the records also included the user’s gender, the outlet reported.

Before it was taken down, the server had included information about approximately 133 million U.S.-based accounts, 18 million U.K. accounts and more than 50 million accounts from Vietnam-based users, according to TechCrunch. A Facebook spokesperson told FOX Business that the information that was posted on the server had to have been taken before last year, when the company stopped making users’ phone numbers public in April.
