Mark Zuckerberg’s Social Media Accounts Hijacked

by | Jun 6, 2016

Hackers have targeted Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s social media accounts, briefly hijacking his LinkedIn, Twitter and Pinterest accounts, reports Fox News.

The Fox report, in part, added:

“Endgadget reported Sunday that the accounts were quickly restored. Hackers describing themselves as ‘OurMine Team’ changed the title of Zuckerberg’s Pinterest page to “Hacked by OurMine Team” and posted a message saying “Hey, we are just testing your security.” The hackers also posted a link to the @_OurMine_ Twitter account, which has now been suspended.

“A Twitter account that Zuckerberg has not used since 2012 was also hacked.

““The affected accounts have been re-secured using best practices,” a Facebook spokesman told FoxNews.com, via email, adding that none of the Facebook’s systems or accounts were accessed.

““We were alerted of this takeover attempt and have taken action to remove the false profile on LinkedIn,” a LinkedIn spokesman told FoxNews.com, via email.

“Twitter did not comment on the specific details of the Zuckerberg hack when contacted by FoxNews.com, but urged users to mainatain strong passwords. “A number of other online services have seen millions of passwords stolen in the past several weeks,” a Twitter spokesman told FoxNews.com, via email. “We recommend people use a unique, strong password for Twitter.””
