The data, released on Wednesday, was obtained from Six4Three, an app developer that is currently in a legal dispute with Facebook.

"We stand by the platform changes we made in 2015 to stop a person from sharing their friends' data with developers." (Reporting by Munsif Vengattil in Bengaluru; Editing by Sriraj Kalluvila)
