BREAKING: Facebook Reveals 'Millions' of Instagram Passwords Were Exposed

It's so annoying to hear that Instagram exposed millions of passwords after exposing Facebook passwords recently,it was said that millions of Instagram accounts were left out in the open for Facebook employees to see.

A full month after Facebook admitted it mistakenly stored hundreds of million of passwords in plaintext where employees could see them, the company quietly added a significant update: that millions of Instagram passwords were also affected.

"Since this post was published, we discovered additional logs of Instagram passwords being stored in a readable format," Facebook wrote.

"We now estimate that this issue impacted millions of Instagram users. We will be notifying these users as we did the others. Our investigation has determined that these stored passwords were not internally abused or improperly accessed."

The company did not offer an explanation on why it took four weeks for this additional piece of information to be added to its former disclosure, or why it chose to do so at almost exactly the same time as the entire freaking report dropped.
