Facebook Session Expired

Sep 28

I’m with several coworkers and we all got this notification. Seems weird that we all got it at once. Did others just get this?

(I’m posting this in office life because Blind and Facebook are where I spend about 1/3 of my time at work)

    FB employees were hacked and asked to solve a leetcode hard before getting access back

    • Microsoft / MgmtJavas
      And most of them didn’t get access

    I don’t know what happened but it’s not necessarily a bad thing for your security. Some people log in and forget to log out. This will remove all those forgiven sessions, but we will probably loose some grandmas ;)

      Yes, they should have paid the hackers and covered it up, instead of announcing it.

      LOL the guy from Uber is 100000% correct. FB is getting what it deserves. Why the fuck is anyone worried about hackers???? They WILLINGLY gave away your data to the likes of Cambridge analytica.

      Ask your FB friends to send you your profile url. It should contain your user id. I think you can use it in the email/phone number field on the login form. Try to login and then use option to restore your account.

    It’s the trade off of giving sexy and exciting work to engineers otherwise they leave - such is our entitled young generation. Who considers detailed testing and security analysis as exciting (out of college)

    Facebook moves fast and here you have one of the consequences. I've seen a lot: refresh the page dialog, API is not returning updated content after change request, timezone completely not working as desired, find a severe bug while filling a bug:))), pay button in chat not working at all and I'm at the party debugging FB problem, livesteam not able to report abuse or spam in comments. At some point I'm glad not knowing how symmetrical nat works in all details getting TL at Google:)
