Facebook source code leaked

This is bad news for the Facebook team. Someone has managed to glean the source code for the site’s home page, and has posted his/her/their findings on a website, cleverly titled Facebook Secrets. This raises significant questions over the security of the site. Facebook is a closed-source system, meaning that the site code is not made readily available to the general public. As such, the individual(s) who managed to track this stuff down did some illicitly. A site like Facebook should, and no doubt does, have security measures in place to stop this sort of ting from occurring. They’ve obviously failed. A breach like this can render the application/site even less secure, exposing further vulnerabilities and weak spots. Let’s hope they manage patch this up before anything goes terribly wrong…
