Researchers at cybersecurity firm UpGuard claim to have found the records of millions of Facebook users in publicly-accessible places on Amazon’s cloud servers.

The records were apparently stored there by Facebook partners, not by Facebook itself. Moreover, the data was not particularly sensitive — for instance, it did not include financial information or Social Security Numbers, which could be used to facilitate identity theft, and which were exposed in the 2017 Equifax breach.

Nonetheless, the exposure highlights the fact that Facebook partners have been able to collect significant amounts of data through their own apps, and that these partners may not always have secured that information adequately. Facebook has faced a barrage of negative publicity over the last two years related to the way it and its partners collect, share and secure data that users store and share on the service.

Facebook stock dipped about 1 percent on the report and ended the day slightly negative. Amazon was off its session highs but still up about 0.4 percent by Wednesday’s close.

Momentum Indicators

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 81.8378. This is an overbought reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses below 80 The last signal was a buy 10 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 62.49. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 38 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 216.This is an overbought reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses below 100. The last signal was a buy 11 period(s) ago.
