Facebook staff had access to hundreds of millions of people’s passwords

New York (CNN Business)Facebook revealed on Thursday it didn’t properly mask the passwords of hundreds of millions of its users and stored them as plain text in an internal database that could be accessed by its staff.

The company said it discovered the exposed passwords during a security review in January and launched an investigation. Facebook did not say how long it had been storing passwords in this way.
Facebook shared information about the security incident publicly soon after it was first reported by Krebs on Security.
