Facebook Sues Data-stealing Hacker

Facebook is suing a Ukrainian Hacker, Alexander Alexandrovich Solenchenko, for scraping and selling around 178 million users’ information, including user ids and phone numbers from between 2018 and 2019.

Alexander used a computer program that automated user information requests from Facebook’s computers. The data was allegedly sold in May 2021 to an unknown buyer, supposedly on Raid Forums.
