Facebook Privacy Glitch Revealed Private Photos

A lapse in security for Facebook discovered by Byron Ng, a computer technician from Vancouver, Canada, allowed him to sneak through Facebook’s newly improved privacy controls deployed last week.

The security loophole allowed him to view private photos of celebrities, along with other access restricted photos posted by other Facebook users.

The Associated Press verified Ng’s claim by accessing and viewing a private photo posted by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

According to a Facebook spokeperson, the security hole was fixed immediately after it was reported.
