Facebook: Up to 90 million addicts' accounts slurped by hackers, no thanks to crappy code


Needs more clarity...

How does this interact with 2FA? Is that still secure, if it's turned on?

Presumably any attempt to actually *use* these access tokens would generate a 'new login from unknown device' warning from FB? I certainly always see that when I try to login from a device I haven't used before. Is that warning a default, or something you have to set up when you configure security? I can't recall.
