Yesterday, Facebook announced the accidental release of 6 million users’ personal information. The source of the leak was their Backup Tool, which lets users download their list of friends complete with any information they’d chosen to share. So what happened? A bug in the tool released the phone numbers and email addresses of friends that they not only hadn’t chosen to share, but that they hadn’t even given to Facebook.
