The platform wrote that it would notify impacted users, and stressed that “Our investigation has determined that these stored passwords were not internally abused or improperly accessed.”

The problem has affected “millions” of the network users, according to a Facebook press release. However, the company stressed that “Our investigation has determined that these stored passwords were not internally abused or improperly accessed.” It is reported that the problem has already been fixed.
