Zuckerberg’s Facebook fan page got hacked

Zuckerberg hack.Yesterday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had his fan page hacked. The virtual intruders posted the message you see at right, which reads,

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? http://bit.ly/fs6rT3 What do you think? #hackercup201

The message was removed fairly quickly (by taking down the page), but not before it received some 1800 “likes” from Zuckerberg fans. Facebook still hasn’t commented on the incident.

I do want to remind people not to panic. As much as it looks like Facebook is insecure, this was a targeted attack against a high-profile page. It’s pretty unlikely someone would be hacking your personal Facebook page just to find out where you went to highschool.
