Default 'Socialbots' Steal 250GB of Facebook User Data

Researchers say that "socialbots" stole 250GB of user data from Facebook members. How do they know this? Because the researchers are the ones that released the bots on Facebook's network in the first place. Programs designed to resemble humans infiltrated Facebook recently and made off with 250 gigabytes of personal information belonging to thousands of the social network's users, researchers said in an academic paper released today.
