MENLO PARK, CA – It seems no one is safe from hackers, not even Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
Palestinian white hat hacker Khalil Shreateh busted onto Zuckerberg’s timeline and posted a message, even though they’re not friends.
Just think of the implications: marketing companies posting spam, or worse, exes airing out dirty laundry.
Khalil’s message? In his words, “First sorry for breaking your privacy and post to your wall. I has no other choice to make after all the reports I sent to Facebook team.”
It seems this hacker tried to alert Facebook’s security team, to no avail. So, a hacker’s gotta do what a hacker’s gotta do, we guess.
Facebook tried to save face. The company patched the security hole and said that Khalil’s tip wasn’t ignored; he just didn’t provide enough information.
Well, it looks like Facebook got the proof they were looking for.
