Facebook “flaw” lets anyone see your private photos

Features in Facebook give users access to personal, private and hidden photos that would normally be hidden from view. The flaw, spotted by members of a body building forum, no less, allows Facebook users to access photos revealed by the report abuse tool.

This flaw appears to expose private photos of any person on Facebook. We tried this out for ourselves: Sometimes,  private photos were exposed; others times they weren’t.

Members of the forum also posted onto an image sharing website some of of Zuckerberg’s private Facebook photos, which are normally inaccessible from public viewing.

The forum explored a number of the flaw’s details. For example, private photos that are hidden or inaccessible to people who are friends, can not only be accessed but can be enlarged to their full scale.
