Facebook leak: Irish regulator probes ‘old’ data dump

A data leak involving personal details of hundreds of millions of Facebook users is being reviewed by Ireland’s Data Protection Commission (DPC).

The database is believed to contain a mix of Facebook profile names, phone numbers, locations and other facts about more than 530 million people.

Facebook says the data is “old”, from a previously-reported leak in 2019.

But the Irish DPC said it will work with Facebook, to make sure that is the case.
