Facebook-Data Breach: Users should demand security measures, not compensation

FacebookOn Tuesday, San Francisco US Judge William Alsup said 29 millions users of Facebook, whose personal information was leaked in September on 2018, they cannot ask in a group allowances but may require more measures security by the social networking company.

Users have been able to sue as a group on Facebook and require the use of automated monitoring tools (to enhance security), improve employee training and education users about threats of cyberspace.

Facebook corrected the vulnerability that had caused it infringement of the data and said that the above actions were not necessary. However, the court rejected the proposal.

"Repeated losses of Facebook users' personal data require a long-term surveillance plan," the judge said.

At the moment, the reaction of the users' lawyers but not of the lawyer itself has been known platform social networking about the court ruling.

The incident occurred on 28 September 2018. Facebook had said then that the breach was caused by vulnerabilities on software, which were exploited by the hackers and accessed the accounts of 50 millions of users. It was then described as the biggest violation data the company's.

Two weeks later, Facebook revealed that the number of users affected was even greater. Specifically, hackers stole access tokens of 30 millions of users and personal information (Gender, Religion, Email Addresses, Search History Phone Numbers) 29 millions of users.

Facebook has been accused many times of inadequate protection user data of. He has even accepted many lawsuits and have been heavily imposed on him fines, as in the case of the scandal Cambridge Analytica. Facebook had allowed the UK company to have it access to data of about 87 million users.

In September, San Francisco-based Judge Vince Chhabria ruled that Facebook should pay a fine for third-party access to users' personal data. He also said that Facebook's views on user data protection are "so wrong".

The CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, "Privacy gives people the freedom to be themselves and to connect with others more naturally, that's why we build social networks," he said in a blog post on privacy.
