Facebook security fix actually allowed private pictures to be visible for a while

George Mathis has a story on a Facebook bug fixed today that for a while allowed pictures marked as private to be accessed by others in public anyway. Someone proved the point by posting one of Mark Zuckerberg’s “Private” pictures.

The bug had occurred as Facebook pushed a facility to allow reporting multiple instances of inappropriate content simultaneously.
The story from the Atlanta Constitution blogs is here.
