Facebook bug unblocks unwanted connections for a bit; glitch fixed
The vast majority of the more than 800,000 people affected by the bug had only one person they had blocked be temporarily unblocked, according to Facebook. People affected by the bug will get notifications encouraging them to check their blocked lists. Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg earlier this year was grilled by the European Parliament and the US Congress about a massive breach of users' personal data in the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
Facebook said it is notifying more than 800,000 users that a software bug temporarily unblocked people at the social network and its Messenger service. Image source: Reuters
