"A security engineer now employed at Facebook is likely using privileged access to stalk women online".
Facebook became aware of claims concerning the employee in question after cybersecurity consultant Jackie Stokes publicly tweeted about the allegations over the weekend.
Citing former employees, the report stated that several employees have been fired for mishandling users' personal information. "So out of habit I have to say that you are hard to find lol".
"Although we can't comment on any individual personnel matters", a Facebook spokesperson wrote in an email, "we are aware of the situation and investigating".
Meanwhile, Facebook recently introduced new developers' tools and features at its F8 2018 conference which are aimed at enhancing the user experience on its social networking platform. According to a statement by a chief security officer at Facebook, Alex Stamos, the reason for the termination was the social network's intolerance for abuse of privileges.
"I've been made aware that a security engineer now employed at Facebook is likely using privileged access to stalk women online", she wrote.
Facebook has "strict policy controls and technical restrictions so employees only access the data they need to do their jobs - for example to fix bugs, manage customer support issues or respond to valid legal requests", Mr. Stamos added Tuesday. "Everyone deserves to feel safe, even on the internet". Stokes said that she figured out the person was an employee at Facebook by cross referencing his online profiles on Tinder, LinkedIn and Keybase connections, reports NBC News. A Twitter user prior on Wednesday posted about the Tinder discussion alongside screen captures, saying Facebook's security design is likely utilizing advantaged access to stalk ladies on the web.
One source said that multiple people had been fired for abusing their access, including using it to stalk former romantic partners.
Facebook said that it was "investigating this as a matter of urgency" while falling short of providing any details on the employee's position or the data he may have accessed.
