Facebook falls prey to hackers in latest sophisticated cyber attackby

Social networking giant Facebook was targeted in a "sophisticated attack" in January, its security team confirmed

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Facebook, the world's most popular social networking site, was hacked in January. Using a "sophisticated attack" method, hackers were able to gain access to a developer website and install malware on it.

"Last month, Facebook security discovered that our systems had been targeted in a sophisticated attack," the California-based company said.

"The attack occurred when a handful of employees visited a mobile developer website that was compromised."

Facebook's security team confirmed that users' personal information had not been compromised.

It said the hack was the latest in a series of cyber attacks on several high-profile media companies. Earlier this month, micro-blogging site Twitter was hacked and 250,000 user passwords stolen.
