Critical Hardware and Business Applications Can Fail

Critical Hardware and Business Applications can Fail

One of the most alarming things about the nature of any company’s IT infrastructure is that a lot of the time you don’t realise there’s a problem until it’s too late. Critical hardware and business applications can fail, and nobody knows anything about it until the damage is already done. Fixing things retroactively is a time-consuming and costly process, and can keep your systems out of action for periods of time when you really should be getting on with the day-to-day running of your business. Spotting these things when they first occur is a vital first step in tackling them and reducing downtime and negative effects on your bottom line.

Facebook Security Breach: October 2018

Facebook Security Breach:
October 2018

facebook-security-breach-cyber-security

On Tuesday 25th September 2018, Facebook was the victim of a cyber-attack, which has affected over 30 million Facebook users. This attack is the worst security breach that Facebook has been the victim of, with the hackers successfully accessing the personal data of 29 million Facebook accounts.

Facebook has launched an investigation into this cyber-attack, after discovering that the attackers had obtained tokens from the system, which allows them to request certain information from the platform.

The hackers have accessed a range of information from these users, including their personal information and contact details. For around 15 million users, the attackers obtained their usernames and contact details, and this includes their phone numbers and email addresses.

For the other 14 million Facebook accounts, the hackers accessed the above information, as well as their gender, language, relationship status, religion, hometown, current city, birthdate, education and more.

Facebook users can check whether they have been affected by the attack by visiting their Help Centre. Victims should also have received a message from Facebook themselves, informing whether you are 1 of the 30 million, and explaining which information may have been accessed.
