Facebook PHP Source Code from August 2007

In August 2007 a hacker found a way to expose the PHP source code on He retrieved two files and then emailed them to me, and I wrote about the issue:

It became a big deal:

The two files are index.php (the homepage) and search.php (the search page)

I don’t know what ended up happening to the guy who stole the code.

I found these files today while searching for another Facebook related file. Worth preserving as part of Internet history.
