Facebook started looking into fix the bugs

Facebook started looking into fix the bugs, which allows the users to view private photographs of the others. Facebook took it as a serious issue after the CEO Mark Zuckerberg private photos has been released in the internet.

"We discovered a bug in one of our reporting flows that allows people to report multiple instances of inappropriate content simultaneously," Facebook quoted.

"The bug allowed anyone to view a limited number of another user's most recently uploaded photos irrespective of the privacy settings for these photos," it said.

"This was the result of one of our recent code pushes and was live for a limited period of time," Facebook reported.

"Upon discovering the bug, we immediately disabled the system, and will only return functionality once we can confirm the bug has been fixed," it said.

An unauthorized person posted "It's time to fix those security flaws Facebook..." with the CEO’s private photos, since it reaches more than millions of people in Facebook.

Facebook said "the privacy of our user's data is a top priority for us, and we invest significant resources in protecting our site and the people who use it."
