Guy Rosen, VP of product management, said hackers started the attack from 400,000 accounts they controlled, then used an automated process to steal access to friends’ accounts, and then friends of friends. 15 million Facebook users had their names and contact info stolen; another 14 million had details like gender, address, birth date, education and more taken.
