KATHMANDU — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerebrg, founder of world’s largest social network Facebook, has had his Pinterest and Twitter accounts hacked by a group of hackers, ABC Online reported.
The group OurMine claims the responsibility of the breaching and posted taunting messages from both of his social media accounts.
The group, which before having its account suspended had more than 40,000 followers on Twitter, claimed to have learned Mr Zuckerberg’s password as a result of a recent LinkedIn data leak.
“Hey @finkd, you were in LinkedIn Database with the password ‘dadada’! DM (direct message) for proof,” the group tweeted from Mr Zuckerberg’s Twitter account.
Apart from this the team told Facebook founder that they were just testing his security and also invited him to contact them.
Screenshots of the hack shared across social media showed OurMine also claimed to have gained access to Mr Zuckerberg’s Instagram account.
Twitter reacted fast and deleted the offending tweets and suspended the Twitter page of OurMine.
According to hackers, Zuckerberg has broken more than one basic security rule that restrict hackers from hacking the account.
LinkedIn said it would invalidate the passwords of the accounts impacted and warned users to reset their passwords.
