Zack Whittacker reports:

‘Report abuse’ features in Facebook give users access to personal, private and hidden photos that would normally be hidden from view.

The flaw, spotted by members of a body building forum, no less, allows Facebook users to access photos revealed by the report abuse tool.

Only a handful of images are presented to the user as part of the ‘report’ feature, which is used by Facebook to maintain decency and remove harmful images, posts or content.

Read more on ZDNet, where you’ll also see Facebook’s acknowledgement of the bug.  Threat Level also jumped on the story, here.
