Why Am I Not Surprised?: Mark Zuckerberg's Official Facebook Fanpage Gets Hacked

January 26, 2011


Proving that the Geekologie fanpage's precious status updates might not be as safe as previously thought, an unknown hacker took control of Mark Zuckerburg's official Facebook fanpage this week, probably by guessing his password, "administrator". Good one Mark, but I would've gone with "IOWNTHISBITCH111".

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's fan page was hacked Tuesday -- a high-profile breach on a site that constantly faces scrutiny about its handling of its members private data.

"It's not clear if he was careless with his password, was phished, or sat down in a Starbucks and got sidejacked while using an unencrypted wireless network,"...."However it happened, it's left egg on his face just when Facebook wants to reassure users that it takes security and privacy seriously."

While the method of attack is still unclear, it's crystal clear that Mark Zuckerburg has 2,836,752 more Facebook fans than Geekologie, making me question my entire existence. WTF DOES HE HAVE THAT I DON'T?! "Hepatitis?" You said it not me!

Thanks to Evil Ares, who, while certainly evil, isn't 'hack-a-Facebook-fanpage' evil. Good to know.
