Facebook Says It Would Have Just Given Hacker 50 Million Users' Personal Info If They Asked Politely

Announcing on Friday that a hack which affected up to 50 million users was “totally unnecessary,” Facebook said it would have just given the hacker all of the users’ private data if they had just asked politely.

“I don’t see why they have to go and make this whole thing difficult by hacking us,” said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. “It would have been so much easier to just give the hacker all of our stupid users’ information. It’s no big deal, really. We do it all the time.”

Sources say the hack exploited vulnerabilities in Facebook’s code, allowing the perpetrator potential access to the personal information of “millions of suckers who still thought their data was safe.”

“Why couldn’t they be more like those nice folks at Cambridge Analytica who paid good, honest dollars for access to people’s private info,” said Zuckerberg. “I guess you can’t trust anybody anymore.”
