Moreover, Facebook is not just initiate a password change, but also suggests that the mailbox also captured the attacker, so besides the confirmation e-mail addresses require blocked users answer additional questions.

Facebook honestly reported reason for blocking the affected users, "Recently there was an incident with security at one of the sites, which is not related to Facebook. Facebook is not directly affected by the incident, but your Facebook account is at risk, because you used the same password for both. To protect your account, you need to answer a few questions and change your password. "
