A Suit filed against Facebook due to Failure in Warning Users of Risks

Facebook the world’s largest social media network has been sued by its users over a 2018 breach. The suit claimed that it failed to warn them about risks tied to its single sign-on tool, even though it protected its employees.

Single sign-on connects the users to third-party apps and services using their Facebook credentials.

Facebook had the worst security breach in September when login codes or “access tokens” were hacked by the hackers, which allowed them to access nearly 29 million accounts, as per the lawsuit.

Facebook knew about the access token vulnerability and failed to fix it for years, despite that knowledge,” the plaintiffs said in a heavily redacted section of the filing in the US District Court for the Northern District of California in San Francisco.

“Even more egregiously, Facebook took steps to protect its employees from the security risk, but not the vast majority of its users.”

The request for comment was not immediately responded by Facebook.

To uncover how much user data was stolen, Judge William Alsup told Facebook in January, that he was willing to allow “bone-crushing discovery.”

During the initial disclosure of attack, Facebook revealed few details; the hacking of the “access tokens” only affected a “broad” spectrum of users without breaking down the numbers by country.

It has also been revealed that profile details like birth date, employers, education history, religious preferences, types of devices used, pages followed, recent searches and check-ins from about 14 million users had been taken by the hackers.

The investigation also suggests that for the other 15 million users, the breach was restricted to name and contact details. In addition to that, posts, lists of friends and groups of about 4 lakh users could be seen by the attackers.

Facebook said that the attackers did not steal personal messages or financial information nor access the users’ accounts on other websites.
