30 million people have been affected by a massive hack of Facebook — and the FBI has asked the social networking company not to reveal who might be behind it.

On Friday, Facebook provided more details about an attack on its systems that it first disclosed two weeks ago, and said at the time could affect up to 50 million people.

In its update, Facebook said the company is cooperating wih the FBI, and 30 million people were affected in total.

“We’re cooperating with the FBI, which is actively investigating and asked us not to discuss who may be behind this attack,” Facebook exec Guy Rosen wrote in a blog post.

“We now know that fewer people were impacted than we originally thought. Of the 50 million people whose access tokens we believed were affected, about 30 million actually had their tokens stolen.”
