Facebook Breach ..

On the afternoon of Tuesday, September 25, our engineering team discovered a security issue affecting almost 50 million accounts. We’re taking this incredibly seriously and wanted to let everyone know what’s happened and the immediate action we’ve taken to protect people’s security.

They said the breach allowed hackers to completely take over facebook accounts. It didn't happen to me that I know of. Anyone else have it happen?

It was stated that FB logged those affected out of their accounts, a few posted this morning that it was odd they had to log in, then this story broke..I wasn't logged off, either way I'm not that concerned. Nothing I would consider sacred..anywhere online..

Good Luck!

Hubby and I didn't have to sign on. But I took the opportunity to change our passwords.. I've been meaning to for a while. I had pretty simple passwords.

No information over what someone can find anywhere else on us.

I had to log in, change my password and was not allowed to "like" any posts. Happened twice in the last few days.
