Facebook announced that hackers had used a weakness in Facebook’s code regarding its “view as” feature this week to take over control of up to 50 million accounts. The hackers got access tokens to stay in accounts without re-entering a password.
Some 50 million users had their access tokens stolen – they were reset by Facebook, and now users have to re-enter their passwords when they try to access the service.
Facebook said the hack happened because of “complex interaction of multiple issues in our code”.
The complexities of cybersecurity were discussed in a special workshop on AI at our most recent female executive roundtable for Women in Compliance, and also in our round tables in Paris and London with CISOs from large financial services and fashion brands.
To be part of the technical committees or to learn more about CSI, give us a call.
