The details of over 500 million global Facebook users have been found on the internet, although Facebook has stated that the leaked data is old and results from a problem it resolved in 2019. However, computer security experts contend that the leaked information could still result in issues for users who are impacted by the problem. They state that the simplest way to find out if a person’s data has been leaked is to look on websites operated by security researchers; these include ‘HaveIbeenpwned.com’.
