New Scientist: Huge new Facebook data leak exposed intimate details of 3m users

New Scientist: Huge new Facebook data leak exposed intimate details of 3m users. “Data from millions of Facebook users who used a popular personality app, including their answers to intimate questionnaires, was left exposed online for anyone to access, a New Scientist investigation has found. Academics at the University of Cambridge distributed the data from the personality quiz app myPersonality to hundreds of researchers via a website with insufficient security provisions, which led to it being left vulnerable to access for four years. Gaining access illicitly was relatively easy.”
