Mark Zuckerberg’s social media accounts hacked


Founder of social networking site Facebook Mark Zuckerberg’s Twitter and Pinterest accounts passwords were hacked by hacker group named OneMine Team. According to a report by VentureBeat, the Facebook CEO was one of the millions of users whose LinkedIn credentials were hacked in 2012.

The hacker team tweeted from Zuckerberg's handle yesterday saying "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.

While Zuckerberg had accounts on non-Facebook platforms too, he has not used them for some time. This is evident from the fact that he last used his Twitter handle in January 2012. The good news here is his Instagram and Google+ accounts were not hacked, even though the group claimed they had gotten access to the same.

The group, whose principal Twitter account has since been suspended, then messaged him to say that it had found his password on a LinkedIn database of user details that was leaked online last month.

Since OurMine's main Twitter account has been suspended, the original tweet is not publicly available, but other Twitter users, including a U.S.-based social media reporter for CNBC, picked up on the hack.
