Facebook: We left the doors wide open and are so surprised that “malicious actors” walked right in and stole everything

Like what is the world coming to now days?

Facebook said Wednesday that “malicious actors” took advantage of search tools on its platform, making it possible for them to discover the identities and collect information on most of its 2 billion users worldwide.

Facebook enabled massive identify theft to occur for much of the past 14 years. Empirically, Facebook employees are incompetent for the job.

This is a company that is, in my view, likely grossly out of compliance with the FTC consent decree,” said Vladeck, now a Georgetown University Law professor. “I don’t think that after these revelations they have any defense at all.” He called the numbers “just staggering.”

Per the consent decree, at $40,000 per person times 2 billion users, the fine comes to 8 x 10^13 dollars or I think that works out to 80 trillion $s. No kidding 🙂
