Up to 20,000 Facebook employees had access to users' passwords

The passwords of millions of Facebook users were accessible by up to 20,000 employees of the social network.
Security researcher Brian Krebs broke the news about data protection failures, which saw up to 600 million passwords stored in plain text.
The passwords that were exposed could date back to 2012.
In a statement, Facebook said it had now resolved a "glitch" that had stored the passwords on its internal network.
