Facebook Data of 26 crore users leak, Rs 41 thousand price on Dark Web
Facebook data has been leaked every year in the last 15 years and every time Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg apologized. The data of 267 million users of Facebook has been leaked once again.
The data of all 267 million Facebook users is being sold on the dark web for 542 dollars i.e. around Rs 41,600.
The leaked data includes data such as the user’s name, Facebook ID number, age, last connection and mobile number, although the password in the leaked data has not been confirmed yet. These data can be used for pishing attack and spam e-mail.
Security researcher Bob Diachenko has informed this. This report of Facebook’s data leak has been first published on the comparitech website. The report said that data of 267 million Facebook users is present on the Elastisearch server.

Apart from this, the data has also been uploaded to Hackers Forum. It is being said that this data of Facebook users has been leaked through third party apps and cache-cookies. At the same time, researchers of Cyble have also purchased the data for verification.
You can check if your data has been leaked by entering an email ID on Amibreached.com. There is no official statement from Facebook yet on this data leak.
Let me tell you that the data of five lakh users of video conferencing app zoom was leaked earlier and it is worth noting that these data were also being sold on the dark web itself, that too at less than one rupee price. After this data leak, the Government of India has issued a warning regarding the use of the zoom app.
