The researcher reported this problem for the first time to Motherboard, which in turn contacted Facebook to find out more details, to which Facebook responded that the security flaw that allowed to take advantage of this vulnerability has been fixed since 2019.
Facebook confirmed to Motherboard that when using the bot on Telegram they did not find recent user data; However, both Alon Gal and Motherboard state that with the aforementioned robot, they were able to find the phone numbers and data of real users of the social network.

Although the vulnerability was fixed in 2019, users who registered their phone number on Facebook before Facebook fixed the vulnerability had their numbers exposed on Telegram, especially if we consider that the phone number does not usually change frequently, and that Facebook has worked hard on requesting these Data from all people who have Vibock on the social network, especially those who have activated 2-step verification.

Alon Gal stated that it is important for Facebook to notify its users of this privacy breach so that they are less likely to fall victim to various hacking attempts and social engineering.

 So far, neither Facebook, Alon Gal or Motherboard has mentioned whether this robot has been reported to Telegram for the company to disable it.
