Hundreds of millions of Facebook records exposed on Amazon cloud servers

A vast collection of data on Facebook users was exposed to the public until recently on Amazon's cloud computing servers, researchers have found.

UpGuard, a cybersecurity firm, said Wednesday that there were more than 540 million records including comments, likes, reactions and account names exposed to the public. The number of users whose data was included is not yet clear.
Chris Vickery, the director of cyber risk research at UpGuard, told CNN Business that the find "highlights a problem that is intrinsic with mass data collection."
