Facebook server experiences email address leak

Server hiccups managed to throw a spanner in the works of Facebook, where confidential email addresses were leaked this time round. This does not bode too well for Facebook considering the last private message spill happened just last month (February), where everyone’s email has been turned on to the public for at least half an hour before Facebook fixed the leak in their pipes. According to a statement from Facebook, “Last night during Facebook’s regular code push, a bug caused hidden email addresses to be visible briefly.” Hmmm, nary an apology from them either.
