Ignored Facebook® Bug Gets Founder's Page Hacked

August 21, 2013  Security Suite

 

A security vulnerability on Facebook® allowed a self-appointed white hat hacker to reportedly break onto Facebook® Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s home page. The Palestinian computer programmer exploited the bug to bring attention to the vulnerability since his reports about it to the Facebook® security team went unaddressed. This action violates Facebook policies for white hat hackers, who are awarded cash rewards in exchange for reporting bugs. Although the vulnerability has now been fixed, compensation will not be given since the program’s terms were violated.
