How to check if your account was part of Facebook’s 533M record leak

How to check if your account was part of Facebook’s 533M record leak

Multiple reports over the weekend confirmed that an attacker published details — including names, user IDs, phone numbers, and emails — of more than 533 million Facebook users on a forum.

Alon Gal, CEO of security firm Hudson Rock, tweeted about the incident back in January, saying that the database came to the fore when a Telegram user made a bot that let users query the database for a fee.

Catalin Cimpanu of The Record also independently reported that the database was available in 106 different country-wise packages. While these files are publicly available, you’ll need to buy forum credits to download them.

While most records had phone numbers attached to them, multiple email IDs were also exposed. You can use haveibeenpwned, a website that loads email IDs that were exposed in various breaches, to check if your ID was affected.

Here’s how you can do it:

Personal data from over 500M Facebook users leaked online - 9to5Mac

Personal data from over 500M Facebook users leaked online - 9to5Mac

The phone numbers and personal data of over 553 million Facebook users have been published online for free by a user in a low-level hacking forum, according to Business Insider. At least 100 countries are included in this leak, with data from 32 million users in the U.S. and 11 millions users in the UK.

This breach includes phone numbers, Facebook IDs, full names, locations, birthdates, bios, and in some cases email addresses.

Insider reviewed a sample of the leaked data and verified several records by matching known Facebook users’ phone numbers with the IDs listed in the data set. We also verified records by testing email addresses from the data set in Facebook’s password reset feature, which can be used to partially reveal a user’s phone number.
