Facebook® Photo Security Flaw Patched

September 12, 2013  Security Site

Personal photos will stop disappearing from users’ Facebook® accounts now that a security flaw in the Facebook® Support Dashboard has been fixed. Hackers were accessing image identifications without an owner’s knowledge and deleting images stored on the social media site. Using fake Facebook® accounts, hackers would pair up - one acting as a sender and the other as a receiver. A request to remove a photo would be sent from the sender to the receiver via the Facebook® Support Dashboard with the hacked photo’s identification. As allowed by the dashboard, the receiver would then have the privilege to delete the photo since the identification should have been linking the image to the owner. The security researcher who reported the Facebook® bug reportedly received $12,500 for his discovery.
