Facebook exposed millions of passwords

When it comes to Facebook and security it seems there is one potentially damaging lapse after another.

The latest comes via an exclusive report from the KrebsOnSecurity security news site, flagging that hundreds of millions of Facebook users have had their account passwords stored in plain text that could be searched by more than 20,000 Facebook employees – in some cases dating back to 2012.

The author of the report, Brian Krebs, says Facebook told him that none of the employees, to the company’s knowledge, abused the data.
