Facebook Sued Hours After Breach Revelation
A lawsuit against Facebook had reportedly been filed hours after the social network revealed that it had been hit by a data breach which compromised the pesonal and sensitive information of around 50 million users.
The complaint was filed by Carla Echavarria of California and Derrick Walker of Virginia who are seeking class-action status for their grievance. The plaintiffs said that they are now afraid that their data may now be easily accessible to hackers.
The plaintiffs are said to be asking for relief and punitive damages in the form of a fine under California’s Civil code, should the class-action status is granted.
