Submission + - Facebook password glitch?

Year1968 writes: Usually when I log on to my Facebookaccount, I use both small and capital letters in my password.

Today, by accident, my keyboards CapsLock where on, and I logged into my FBaccount, but when I typed my password, the Capital Letters and the small letters in my password was reversed, but the password was still accepted, and I could still log into my account.

I've tested a few times to make sure that it was working, and I even changed my password to se what happened.

This is what I did to check it again. I changed my password to BigBig
I then logged ut, and in again with the password, and it was OK. Then I logged out, and logged in again but this time i used the password bIGbIG, and the password was accepted.

So FB accepts both BigBig , and bIGbIG as the correct password, even though I chose BigBig as my password.

Can anybody please confirm or deny this, and if this is accepted by FB, then I wonder if it is easier for someone to hack my (or someone elses) FBaccount?

Thanks. :)
