Facebook's security flaws exposed more than Facebook — here's what (little) you can do

Security researchers are warning users to be on alert for suspicious activity — on and off Facebook.

Facebook revealed that unnamed attackers were able to exploit a series of flaws to collect “access tokens” for 50 million accounts.

It has not announced how many of those 50 million accounts were accessed or what if any information was taken.
