Facebook comprising data

The personal data of over 500 million Facebook users has been posted online in a low-level hacking forum.

The data includes phone numbers, full names, location, email address, and biographical information.

Security researchers warn that the data could be used by hackers to impersonate people and commit fraud.

Can this be please escalated to the Govt so these large platforms can be taken to court in India.

So many breaches happen why does MEITY keep mum?? more  

Make facebook disabled. Instagram including whatsap and all other chatting platforms are very much vulnerable to hackers. Protection is better than cure. more  
Did Facebook came to your home and invited you to join them? Or gave you a gift and entice you with rewards. If you think your privacy is stolen, just terminate your account and twiddle your thumbs. Did you read the three page T&C of Facebook before enrolling? If you think your name, address, age ,location is VERY private and confidential, DO NOT JOIN ANY SOCIAL MEDIA or book tickets on IRCTC, or any airline or their agents, including RTC Bus. Again you commit a blunder and want Government to take action? Did the GOI asked you to be a member in any such social platform? more  
Cyber security is a myth. The best of security systems have been hacked. People the world over should be careful where they put their privacy data. more  
Why should anybody put accurate sensitive data on any social media? In my case, I usually put inaccurate data like a fake birth year, incomplete mobile number etc etc. I learnt that while working and living overseas. Breaches of data on social media are frequent. more  
This is exactly called what is stealing Privacy Data. SC to recognise. Social Media or Private Sector Shall not be allowed to publicize WHEN THE PHONE BOOK WITH NAME ADDRESS which is legally valid in Security Concern of INDIVIDUALS AS WELL AS THE NATION. Localcircles Management to think on this Serious Security issue and move Stakeholders more
