Facebook data on more than 500M accounts found online

Information on 3.8 million Bangladeshis' Facebook account was leaked by hackers group. Details from more than 500 million Facebook users have been found available on a website for hackers.

The information appears to be several years old, but it is another example of the vast amount of information collected by Facebook and other social media sites, and the limits to how secure that information is.

The availability of the data set was first reported by Business Insider. According to that publication, it has information from 106 countries including phone numbers, Facebook IDs, full names, locations, birthdates, and email addresses, AP reported.

Facebook has been grappling with data security issues for years.
