The video showed the tool crashing the address list of “Facebook” users, while the researcher commented, saying: “As you can see from the data here, I get a great deal of results from it.

I spent maybe 10 dollars to buy 200 individual accounts on Facebook, and within 3 minutes, managed to do this for about 6000 email accounts.

”He added: “Facebook earlier this year had a similar security flaw that was fixed, and this is exactly the same vulnerability, and for some reason they told me directly that they will not take any action on it, although I made it clear to them.

”On the other hand, a Facebook spokesperson said in response: “We appreciate the researcher’s sharing of the information, and we are taking initial measures to alleviate this problem while we continue to better understand his findings.
