EFF advises on what to do if your Facebook account was hacked

Genine Gebhardt has a piece on Electronic Frontier Foundation, about what to do if you were caught in the Facebook hack.

There seems to be about 14 million people who had significant personal information taken. There is a risk that people could be at risk for very targeted phishing, or possibly breakins to their financial accounts (although I think Facebook denied that credit card info was taken).  A more grave risk, however unlikely in practice, could be impersonation of someone in committing a crime and framing someone.
