NEW - Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger down for over one hour and counting. The Cost of Shutdown Tool (COST) calculates a rough estimate of ~$160m in losses per hour to the global economy. On the other hand, freedom from Zuckerberg's apps.
DNS records that tell systems around the world how to find Facebook.com or Instagram.com got withdrawn from the global Internet routing tables this morning. This could mean a wider attack at facebooks domain registrar servers.
Data of over 1.5 billion Facebook users is being sold on a popular hacking-related forum. Data contains users’ names, emails, phone numbers, locations, gender, and user ID.
This is the largest and most significant Facebook data dump to date and seemingly unrelated to an earlier 2021 Facebook data dump.
NYT reports that Facebook employees reportedly can't enter buildings to evaluate the Internet outage because their door access badges don't work anymore, apparently due to electronic fire.
What the HELL?
