Private messages of 120 million Facebook users hacked: Report

London: Hackers have gained access to private messages of nearly 120 million Facebook accounts and already published such messages from 81,000 accounts for generating money, the BBC reported. Several users whose details have been compromised were based in Ukraine and Russia but some were also from the UK, US, Brazil and elsewhere, thereport said on Friday. “The hackers offered to sell access for 10 cents per account. However, their advert has since been taken offline,” it added. The breach was first discovered in September and the messages were reportedly obtained through unnamed rogue browser extensions.  Facebook, however,  said its systems were  not breached as part of the hack.
