"The recurring 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 at 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, Judge Vince Chhabria in San Francisco had said Facebook had to pay a fine for third-party access to users' personal data. It also said Facebook's views on protecting user data were "so wrong".
The CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, had said in a blog post about privacy, "Privacy gives people the freedom to be themselves and connect with others more naturally, that's why we build social networks."
