BY THE CYPRIOT DATA PROTECTION AUTHORITY: data published which seems to refer to Facebook’s users

During the weekend 3-4 April 2021 are found data of a Internet website, which seem to refer to Facebook and include about 533 million of user’s registrations. Some of the registration includes email addresses and telephone numbers.

According to the announcement of the Irish Data Protection Authority, those data seem to come from accidents which occurred in the past, in 2018 and in 2019, but we are not sure if those data have been combined with other data in a subsequent period.

Because Facebook has the registered office in Irish, the Irish Data Protection Authority has started an investigation in order to verify those facts, including the origin of those data, data subjects, and it will inform other authorities on its conclusions.
