Lets not pretend this is moral outrage about protecting privacy or some other such nonsense here. Facebook will sell everything they know. They're just pissed that they weren't paid.

Must admit, that's some GOP-level hypocrisy. Not that I'm surprised. Zuck doesn't want anyone else moving in on his racket.

The holes that enabled this scraping don't qualify as "security flaws" as much as they do as "stupid features".

OTOH, I might hail this Ukrainian fellow as some kind of a scruffy hero if he'd just dumped the data while hollering, "Ha, ha, dumbshiats!"  But no, he was hustling it on the dark web for fractions of a crypto-Euro.
