The Wrong Facebook Pages

Per Michael Willner

The Associated Press reported over the weekend about a significant problem facing users of AT&T’s wireless network. A routing error has caused an unknown number of AT&T customers connecting to other AT&T customers’ Facebook pages — rather than their own. If you’re accessing Facebook via an AT&T wireless device, there’s a chance you will gain access to the Facebook account of a complete stranger. And at the same time, there may be a complete stranger also connected to the AT&T network looking at your Facebook account.

Ouch.
