Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s cell phone number is among the leaked personal data from 553 million users of the site posted online by hackers.
Zuckerberg’s name, location and marriage information, date of birth and Facebook user ID were among the trove of stolen personal data published on a hacker forum on Saturday, cyber researcher Dave Walker confirmed.
Facebook co-founders Chris Hughes and Dustin Moskovitz also had similar personal details included in the leaked data.
A Facebook spokesman said in a statement to DailyMail.com: ‘This is old data that was previously reported on in 2019. We found and fixed this issue in August 2019.’
The database appears to be the same set of numbers circulating in hacker circles at least since January, according to Alon Gal, co-founder of Israeli cybercrime intelligence firm Hudson Rock.
That data had been sold and resold among cybercriminals for some time, but Saturday’s leak on the hacker forum now makes it available essentially for free.
