Facebook warns of possible information breach
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Facebook is sending out a news alert for their users on Monday.
The social networking giant now admits that emails and phone numbers of some six million users may have been exposed to third parties.
In a blog post published late on Friday, the company said six million users' contact details may have been accessible to people who already had some form of connection to them.
Facebook blamed the issue on a technical glitch affecting the company's friend recommendation tool.
The company stresses there is no evidence to suggest the bug was exploited by hackers, and no other personal information was accessed.
