Facebook had to temporarily disable its "Midnight Delivery" New Years message feature after a flaw in the features privacy settings were found. The issue was exposed early Monday morning by a technology student.
The new Midnight Delivery feature is designed to allow Facebook users to compose a message to their friends and family and have it delivered exactly at the stroke of midnight on New Years day. The issue was discovered when Jack Jenkins figured out he could expose private messages and photos sent by others by simply modifying the URL of his own message.
A Facebook rep told the website "The Verge" that "we are working on a fix for this issue now, and in the interim we have disabled this app on the Facebook Stories site to ensure that no messages can be accessed."
