A security lapse made it possible for unwelcome strangers to peruse personal photos on a popular online hangout.

The Associated Press verified a loophole found by a Canadian computer technician on the Facebook web site. This comes after the web site unveiled more ways for their 67-million members to restrict access to their personal profiles last week.

Upon being alerted, Facebook fixed the security breach within one hour. News Corporation's Myspace.com had a similar security breach earlier in the year that also exposed its members photos.
