Facebook Vulnerability Discloses Friends Lists Defined as Private

http://j.mp/1birbxG  (Quotium)

    "Irene Abezgauz from the Quotium Seeker Research Center identified a
     security flaw in Facebook privacy controls. The vulnerability allows
     attackers to see the friends list of any user on Facebook. This attack
     is carried out by abusing the 'People You May Know' mechanism on
     Facebook, which is the mechanism by which Facebook suggests new
     friends to users."
