So apparently the leaked data of 533 million Facebook users came from a 2019 breach that wasn’t previously disclosed after all. Not just that, Facebook chose not to notify the users affected either. Yes, totally reasonable and responsible behavior, as you would expect.

@WPalant not to mention the fact that the GDPR explicitly *demands* that you disclose any leaks to those affected within 72hrs.

Here's to hoping they get slapped with the full fine.

@doenietzomoeilijk Yes, the article mentions that. It might be the reason why Facebook originally claimed this to be data from an already disclosed breach.

Yes, I also hope that they get a massive fine for trying to sweep this under the carpet.
