Facebook reveals huge security breach

Facebook announced today that a security breach had allowed access to information of some 50 million accounts.

The breach allowed accounts to be taken over and the vulnerability supposedly has been corrected.

Funny, just yesterday an article popped up on my Facebook page recirculating an article damaging to opponents of Brett Kavanaugh from a right-wing source. I had seen the item on a news feed, but I didn't remember posting it to my Facebook account and deleted it because I wouldn't have wanted to give circulation to it. Did I hit a wrong button? Infiltrated? Who knows. Apparently millions signed out and signed back in today as part of the cleanup.
