Facebook says ‘no malicious exercise behind’ service outage


Oct 5 (Reuters) – Facebook Inc (FB.O) mentioned on Tuesday “there was no malicious activity behind” a defective configuration change that knocked all of its companies off the web for hours a day earlier.

The firm earlier had not made clear whether or not the configuration change had been deliberate or whether or not somebody intentionally interfered with its servers.
