    The credit for c***up of the year goes to Facebook. The company keeps promising things but as it now turns out it stored the passwords of hundreds of millions of users completely unencrypted, yes that...

    I use random passwords for everything so when something like this happens i have nothing to worry about except in the one instance.

    How the hell developers miss password protection. Doesn't seem like a "Bug" to me.

    I bet it was intentional - an attempt to repel the hackers with self-respect.

    "The company assures that the passwords were not visible outside the company and there is no evidence that they have been misused by employees. "

    Facebook scandals:
    Everyone: Dead man walking.
    Luckily, FB has more companies under their umbrella to withstand the siege.
    Even so, people are leaving from the platform, but still using WhatsApp or Instagram.
    What Zuck accomplished in the last year alone in terms of bad publicity and damaging everyone's trust is astounding.
    For sure, sooner or later FB will face some radical changes or demise.
    Not having FB doesn't necessarily makes you or me safe from harm.
    Having a Google account is in many ways the same if not even worse in terms of privacy.
