Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook Page Hacked

Hacker posts message about transforming Facebook into a "social business"

Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook Page Hacked

First they targeted Nicolas Sarkozy's Facebook page, and now they have targeted none other than Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg's page on his own social networking website according to a report.

An unknown hacker hacked into the Facebook account of the 26-year-old celebrity CEO and recent Times Person of the Year, and posted this message.

"Let the hacking begin: If Facebook needs money, instead of going to the banks, why doesn't Facebook let its users invest in Facebook in a social way? Why not transform Facebook into a 'social business' the way Nobel Price winner Muhammad Yunus described it? What do you think? #hackercup2011"

Within no time of posting this message, more than 1800 people had already liked this post and there were over 500 comments below it. It is pretty obvious that Zuckerberg did not post this message and his profile page was taken down by Facebook when it discovered the hack.

The post has since been deleted and Zuckerberg's page is now back up again. Strangely, Facebook has not commented about the hack and there is no mention about it on Mark Zuckerberg's now online Facebook profile either. It is therefore anyone s guess about how the hacker broke into his account.

Online security firm Sophos has made and posted a video about this hack and you can see it in the video below.
