The flaw is so critical that according to Arul Kumar, the hacker who discovered the bug, it can be used to delete photos even from the photo album of Mark Zuckerberg. In other words, the vulnerability plagues every single photo posted to Facebook which is precisely why it is so critical.

Facebook has been rather quick in acknowledging the flaw and has awarded Kumar with $12,500 as part of its Bug Bounty program. Apparently, the flaw involves sending the owner of any given photo the removal link for that photo. As soon as the owner clicks on that link, the photo is removed from the site.

However, by using the exploit, you can receive the removal link of virtually any image posted on the social network. In other words, you have the option of removing any of these images.

After Facebook responded to Kumar’s submission and acknowledged the flaw, the team has been working on patching it at the earliest. Kumar has provided the detailed steps on how to exploit the bug, followed by a statement that Facebook has finally patched the bug. Thankfully, the company has been quick in responding to a security threat of a critical nature.
