A new bug on Facebook
My name is Romeno Wenogk, I'm from Oman. I have found a bug on facebook.
The bug I found would allow a hacker to send a message as someone other than himself to another person without even logging in to another person's account.
Take this example, John and Melissa are friends on facebook. A hacker can send a message as John to Melissa without logging into John's account - The hacker would just need John's email and Melissa's facebook username.
The bug works flawlessly on the phone/tablet apps on both IOS and Android.
I have reported this to Facebook. But they keep telling me that it doesn't look authentic on the MAIN facebook site(facebook.com) while I specifically reported to the section "Mobile website/ app", it seems as if they do not like to accept the fault.
If this goes to the wrong hands I guess this can make a huge loss to facebook.
