500 million Facebook users’ personal information has been found on a website for hackers.

This data, reported by Business Insider looks to be a few years old and contains phone numbers, full names, locations, and emails of just over half a billion Facebook users.

The information comes from over a hundred countries, with most of it from the US, UK, and India.

Data of 267 million Facebook users was found in 2019 by a Ukrainian security specialist. Most of them were from the US.
