facebook offers two factor authentication, everyone should switch that on and this wouldn't be as much of an issue.

Re: Stolen Facebook and Yahoo passwords dumped online

they should but back when I had an account (with 2 step auth) someone gained access to my account from overseas, compromised several other accounts and somehow removed the phone number from the account (apparently they had harvested info through being a group admin, then contacted Facebook admin claiming to be me on holiday having lost my phone and requesting my account settings were changed...then they proceeded to spam random junk and attempt to scam monies all of which got a lot of people rather upset (some still wont talk to me)  oh and to top it off they also signed up to several credit agreements on my behalf leaving me with 2 months of legal hassle (all of which I'm sure amused the perpetrator) oddly enough I haven't had a Facebook account since....
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you
