On Thursday in a Blog Entry, Facebook revealed that about 600,000 log-ins every day are compromised. Ain’t That A Huge Number?
The factoid was first noted by security site Sophos, was in the context to a note entry while the new security features for the social network were announced. The figure was estimated by a stat showing 0.06% of 1 billion logins per day are compromised which is less than 0.5% of Facebook users experience spam on any given day.
Facebook’s proposed solution for such breaches is to find three to five “trusted friends” which means that a temporary password will be sent to your “Trusted Friend” which are chosen by You. That way, if you’re locked out of your account, your friends will help you to get in. Facebook is also stating that it is testing app passwords that the company will generate on your behalf and you won’t need to remember.
