- Some 30 million Facebook users were victims of the hacking attack it revealed recently.
- That attack exposed the personal information of many users, including their names, phone numbers, birth dates, and more.
- That kind of information could be used for identity theft and to compromise users’ financial and other accounts, security and privacy experts say.
- The exposure of that data can also pose particular and obvious dangers to people who are trying to keep a low profile, such as victims of domestic violence.
