This news comes at a time when the social media firm is already struggling with lawsuits that have tarnished its brand name.

Facebook, which boasts of more than 2.2 billion users per month, is yet to determine whether any of the hacked account information has been misused. It also needs to identify the culprits and intention behind the attack.

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO, Facebook has described the incident as “really serious” in a conference call with reporters. In fact, as per sources, Zuckerberg’s account was also affected by the massive scale attack.
