Facebook Glitch Gives Hacker Access To Zuckerberg’s Private Photos
Maybe Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook itself will take it's users privacy more seriously now that private photos of Zuckerberg have been leaked online.
He's got more information on Facebook users than their respective governments and its readily available to anyone with the time and inclination to learn to hack. And the latest victim is the founder itself.
A web expect discovered a glitch in Facebook's photo reporting tool that when used allows anyone access to photos tagged private by the user. A whole album load of personal pictures Zuckerberg uploaded to his personal page are now plastered across the internet. None are terribly embarrassing or revealing. But if the founder of the social site can't keep his stuff secure what makes anyone think their's is either?
A Facebook spokesperson claims the glitch happened ironically with a recent update and has since been remedied.
The hard rule continues to be; if you don't want the world to see it, don't put it online.
