FB in the news. Again.

“Facebook Hackers Access Nearly 50 Million Accounts,” The Wall Street Journal, September 29, 2018 A1.  Unknown hackers may have gotten access as early as July 2017 by exploiting flaws in the system’s code.  May have taken over your account and gotten to your posts and private messages, and may have the credentials to access other services, like Tinder and Spotify.

Is Facebook responsible for making sure its site is secure?  How did the executive in charge of safety and security miss this?  Does the Board at Facebook have liability?  Facebook no longer has a Chief Security Officer.
