Facebook Password-Bypass Flaw Fixed

Facebook says it fixed that password-bypass flaw that popped up last week. No worries though, your account probably wasn't accessed by strangers all weekend. wink

The flaw centered on e-mails sent out by the social network which contained links that, once clicked, would log a user straight into a Facebook account without the need for any secondary authentication, such as entering a password. The e-mails could be discovered through a simple Google search query, with 1.3 million accounts potentially open to the flaw, according to Hacker News.
