Japan orders Facebook to improve data protection

Reuters
The Japanese government on Monday ordered Facebook to improve the protection of users' personal information following data breaches affecting tens of millions of people worldwide.


Facebook said early this month that hackers accessed the personal data of 29 million users in a breach at the world's leading social network first disclosed late September.


The company had originally said, up to 50 million accounts were affected in a cyber attack that exploited a trio of software flaws to steal access tokens that enable people to automatically log back onto the platform.


Japan's Personal Information Protection Commission today demanded the social media giant investigate why the personal data was hacked and draw up preventive measures. 

Top government spokesman Yoshihide Suga said that Facebook told Japanese authorities the 29 million people hacked in the latest attack may include Japanese users.
