Hacked Facebook users could be owed as much as 6,000 pounds ($7,800) in compensation as a result of the security breach revealed last week.
Legal experts have told The Sun that damages could run into the “thousands” for anyone affected by the hack — if you can prove you felt distressed.
The article goes on to state the following:
Last Friday, Facebook revealed that hackers gained access to 50 million accounts.
The breach was possible thanks to several bugs in Facebook’s systems, which were exploited by hackers.
It meant that attackers were able to log in as absolutely anyone — and access their profiles, photos, friend lists, and even private messages.
Facebook logged 90 million users out as a safety precaution, but the bugs had been live in the website’s code since June 2017.
