Facebook has rushed to fix a security flaw that allowed users to eavesdrop on the live chats of their friends and see their pending friend requests.
The exploit used the site's privacy features - intended to protect a user - to expose the personal information.
With just a few clicks users could spy on their friends' personal chat messages and see who had requested to join their network.
Facebook temporarily removed the chat facility while it fixed the flaw.
The exploit - originally reported by the blog TechCrunch - worked via an option in privacy settings that allows people to preview their profiles as it would appear to their friends.
