Facebook admits storing passwords in plain text

"To be clear, these passwords were never visible to anyone outside of Facebook ," vice president of engineering, security, and privacy Pedro Canahuati said in a blog post.

Facebook on March 21 admitted that millions of passwords were stored in plain text on its internal servers, a security slip that left them readable by the social networking giant's employees.

"To be clear, these passwords were never visible to anyone outside of Facebook and we have found no evidence to date that anyone internally abused or improperly accessed them," vice president of engineering, security, and privacy Pedro Canahuati said in a blog post.
