Facebook vulnerability

In a somewhat technical article, Help Net Security warns that a Software Development Kit ("SDK") for smart phones, made by Facebook, contains a flaw that may allow any program developed with the SDK to read Facebook login credentials.

The danger is that any other program with this access could get into your Facebook account, read whatever info you have marked private, or even post on your behalf.  No active exploits are reported yet, so it's not panic time.  If you use your smart phone to access Facebook, you should keep an eye on your own Facebook activity.  If anything unusual shows up, change your Facebook password from a computer don't update your smart phone with the new password until after a fix is published.
