Facebook has once again been the victim of a data breach. Its image sharing company, Instagram, which Facebook purchased in 2012, was attacked in late September. Millions of users had their phone numbers and usernames leaked. However, the attacker was deemed a “white hat hacker” and was a security researcher. The hacker claimed to have found vulnerabilities in the “Sync Contacts” feature and said other hackers could have done the same.
