One wouldn’t expect a popular techie like Mark Zuckerberg to be a victim of social account hacking but here we are with the news from time to time on his improper handling of his social account details like Pinterest.
For the second time this year, Mark Zuckerberg’s Pinterestaccount has been hacked. On Tuesday, notorious hacker group OurMine managed to get hold of Zuck’s account, and changed his bio with their signature tagline “Don’t worry, we are just testing your security.” The account has been restored.
OurMine has been at the limelight for hacking accounts of several top executives. In June, OurMine had claimed responsibility of hacking Quora profile of Google CEO Sundar Pichai. In the past few months, the ground also managed to breach the security of news outlets TechCrunch, BuzzFeed and Variety.
OurMine had hacked Zuckerberg’s Pinterest account in June, too. At the time, the group had said Zuckerberg was re-using “dadada” password on his account, a claim that a Facebook spokesperson had refuted then. For its new trick, OurMine told ZDNet that it exploited a Pinterest vulnerability to get hold of the Facebook founder’s account.
