Facebook Inc has discovered a security flaw affecting about 50 million user accounts which could have allowed attackers to take over the accounts, the social networking company said on Friday.

Facebook has since fixed the vulnerability and informed law enforcement, it said.
Attackers stole Facebook access tokens through its "view as" feature, which they could then use to take over people's accounts. "View as" is a feature that allows users to see what their own profile looks like to someone else.
Facebook has reset the access tokens of the 50 million affected accounts, it said. As a precaution, the company has reset access tokens for another 40 million accounts that have looked up through the "view as" option in the last year.

"Since we've only just started our investigation, we have yet to determine whether these accounts were misused or any information accessed," the company said in a blog post [Click Here].

These relevations should not come as a surprise to anyone. Facebook was designed as an open system with the intent that the user wanted his/her information shared with everyone. Only later did privacy become an issue.

There has to be thousands of back doors in that creation.

Ah, facebook. I suspect a bunch of Big Bear related traffic is now on facebook rather than here, which means us old Luddite users that refuse to use facebook never see a lot of good stuff about BBL.

HIB, I thought they might go for it earlier last week with those Santa Ana's, though we'll be warming up a bit this weekend. It's still early, however, things look to be getting somewhat cold and unsettled headed into November!

Recommended auto service stations in the Big Bear area? We need to have our Jeep's refrigerant drained from the air conditioner so we can replace the heater core ourselves. Thanks!

Thanks NSA! I did notice that the closure wasn't showing up on the CalTrans feed but then Google placed the closure last night which I thought was weird. Two different automated systems getting two different answers? How is that possible?? My bet is with CalTrans
