It seems that no one is immune to hacking, not even Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. According to news reports, Zuckerberg’s Pinterest and Twitter Accounts were hacked over the weekend.
The news was revealed by a team of hackers through a post:
“Hey, @finkd You were in LinkedIn Database with the password “dadada” ! DM for proof..”. As of yet we don’t know much about the hack, but we are sure “dadada” is not a safe password, especially when you are one of the most famous tech leaders in the world.”
Though the tweet was later deleted, a screen shot of it was posted by one hacker called Ben Hall:
It was learnt that Mark was one of the victims of infamous LinkedIn information hack of 2012, when credentials of millions of users was compromised.
The hacker group called OurMineTeam also claimed that besides Twitter and Pinterest they also hacked Mark’s Instagram account.
Though there was no evidence confirming the above claims. Few weeks back social media network, LinkedIn had confirmed
the news that emails and passwords of about 117 million users were leaked back in 2012.
The report about the same had surfaced when a hacker named “Peace” was trying to sell the account details on the Dark Web.
