Facebook has up to 600mn user details saved in plain text

It has just been discovered that up to 600mn Facebook users have their credentials stored in plain text, allowing Facebook employees to search through the personal data of its users with no limitations.  While those details are not made available to individuals outside the company, the data can still be looked up more than 20,000 Facebook staff. As of end-2018, Facebook has 35,587 under their payroll.

This problem was found out in January 2019 through a routine security review. Facebook stated that the issue has been fixed and it is now in the process of informing affected users to change their passwords as a safety step. However just to be safe, it is better to just change your password anyway.
