Facebook made an announcement today, but it wasn’t the fun kind. Guy Rosen, VP of Product Management at Facebook says that at least 50 million user accounts have been compromised by unknown parties. The social network is taking several steps to safeguard affected accounts, as well as other accounts that have questionable involvement.
Facebook became aware of the attack on Tuesday. The cause was a flaw in the site’s code for a feature called “View As” that let you see how your profile looked to another person.
