Facebook Gets Exploited - Security Hole Exposes Private Pictures

A security flaw in Facebook enabled private pictures to be viewed by anyone.

Private pictures were exposed from reporting the target with an inappropriate profile picture. You then had the option to further help Facebook by selecting other pictures that the target had. Doing this enabled you to see their private pictures without friending them.

This security flaw has been patched recently to prevent further abuse. Facebook released a statement claiming they have shut down that feature and are fixing it as soon as possible.
