Hackers have recently targeted Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and chief executive of Facebook.
Few days back, the Zuckerberg’s fan page on Facebook was been attacked by hackers; they took over it and posted certain messages were pretending to be him such as; “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 Prize winner Muhammad Yunus described it? http://bit.ly/fs6rT3 What do you think? #hackercup2011.”
Right after the message was being posted, it was ‘Liked’ more than 1,800 times, attracting approximately 500 comments. All the Facebook users- no matter they are famous or not are required to take utmost care of their social networking security; senior technology consultant at internet security firm Sophos named Graham Cluley was stating this. He further stated that Zuckerberg would want to take a close look at his security and privacy setting after such an embarrassing breach. Although, it has not been cleared until now if he was being careless with his account password, if he was phished or h was been side jacked while making use of an unencrypted wireless network; nevertheless, it happened. It simply made its users uncertain while Facebook is trying to reassure them regarding the security and privacy settings in a serious manner.
The Zuckerberg’s fan page has been removed from the portal and it has refused to give any statement on the security breach. However, the screenshots of the hacked page can be seen here. This breach came in soon after the account of Nicolas Sarkozy; French President’s was also breached.
