600,000 Facebook Logins Are Hijacked Every Day

Facebook thought it was bragging when it announced recently that just 0.06% of its 1 billion daily user logins were made by hijacked accounts. But that's a hell of a lot of logins by hackers and spammers: 600,000/day, according to Sophos. Their new incredibly complicated super-friends scheme should fix this.

That really is a lot of hijacked accounts. It's pretty horrible when you think about it actually... Fingers crossed I won't be hacked any time soon!

That is a lot of hacked accounts, but it's not like you can't just make another account.
