Hulu Pulls Facebook Connect After User Data Exposed

Hulu’s Facebook Connect integration isn’t going well as planned. Almost immediately after the rollout of Facebook Connect, Hulu removed the feature as the company found a technical issue leading some users to be signed in to other people’s Hulu accounts.

Hulu is now looking into the extent of the problem and taking steps to protect its users’ accounts. The company said the flaw was the result of a coding and configuration error on Hulu’s side, denying hacking, other third party actions, or a vulnerability in Facebook Connect.

Currently, the company has stopped all the connection points to Facebook Connect on Hulu, and is requiring users to login directly through the Hulu website.
