According to news reports, data stolen from Facebook in 2019 have been published on a hacker forum. The leaked data include at least names, telephone numbers, links to Facebook profiles, email addresses and the user's gender. The leak does not include data such as passwords or payment information.

According to the National Cyber Security Centre, the leak includes the data of almost 1.2 million Finns. The leaking of personal data increases the risk of their misuse. We have compiled general instructions for victims of personal data breaches on our website in Finnish.
