Check whether your photos were exposed in latest Facebook bug

The social network announced that some users' unpublished photos were potentially exposed. Here's how to find out if you were affected.

On Friday, Facebook disclosed a bug that exposed photos that were uploaded but not posted, affecting 6.8 million people and 1,500 apps connected to Facebook.

The bug was present for just under two weeks, dating from Sept. 13 to Sept. 25.

As part of publicly disclosing the bug, Facebook has also created a page users can visit to see whether their photos could have been exposed.
