Kudos to Kirllos your facebook account is probably pwnd

24 April, 2010 (21:22) | antivirus/spyware, security

I forgot to publish this from Mexico after my birthday when it hit the press. One guy in Russia named Kirllos owns 1 in 300 facebook accounts and has them for sale. A close source today tells me he has a lead on a guy who is selling more accounts than that, and cheaper than Kirllos.  My only point being, if there are 2 known people who have a 1 in 300 shot at already owning your password, I hope you change it as often as I do. There are a lot more than 2 Eastern European hackers in the world.

The combination of facebook owning your data, and you being excluded from that ownership/permissions editing should be something to ponder.
