Facebook warns users to change login credentials after Adobe data breach
Sydney: Facebook has warned users affected by a massive data breach at Adobe to change their login credentials on the social networking site.
Facebook has been mining data leaked from the breach and has asked people who used the same email and password combinations at both sites to change their password and answer some additional security questions.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Facebook spokesman Jay Nancarrow said that the site was constantly on the lookout for data leaked from other breach incidents that may risk accounts of its own users.
Nancarrow said the social networking service acted in the same way in the wake of other high profile breaches to determine if any of its own users` credentials were affected, the report said.
In a breach first on October 3, 2013, Adobe said hackers had stolen nearly 3 million encrypted customer credit card records, and login data for an undetermined number of Adobe user accounts, it added.
