According to sources, Alon Gal, a security researcher, discovered the hack when he noticed that an internet user had posted this data on a hacking forum.

Among the personal data shared were locations, telephone numbers, email addresses and even dates of birth. All of this is available to the public for a minimal fee that anyone can access.

Everything suggests that the origin of this leak was due to a flaw in the platform that Facebook fixed in 2019. It was then that hackers took the opportunity to extract all the information.
