Last month, Facebook admitted that it stored ‘hundreds of millions’ of account passwords in plaintext via its blog post. The company said that the problem affected hundreds of millions of Facebook Lite users, tens of millions of other Facebook users, and tens of thousands of Instagram users. Now, Facebook has updated the blog post to announced that not tens of thousands but millions of Instagram users were affected by the issue. Additionally, the company reiterates its earlier statement that even though the exposed passwords were stored in plaintext, they weren’t abused or accessed improperly. However, it doesn’t describe the basis on which it makes these claims.
