Mark Zuckerberg's been hacked
Mark Zuckerberg's Twitter and Pinterest accounts were hacked.
A group calling itself OurMine Team is taking credit for this.
The OurMine Team says Zuckerberg's information was in a LinkedIn Database that was leaked.
A few weeks ago a hacker by the name of peace claimed to be selling 117 million LinkedIn details.
LinkedIn contacted those effected and told them to change their passwords.
So how did a LinkedIn password work on other sites.
You guessed it.
It appeared that Mark Zuckerberg used the same password on multiple sites including Twitter and Pinterest.
That's a big security no-no.
If you're curious as to what password the founder of Facebook used on other sites.
That information was also shared.
The hackers posted on Zuckerberg's Twitter account the following message, hey, @finkd, you were in LinkedIn database with the password D-A-D-A-D-A.
DM for proof.
That's right, D-A-D-A-D-A was the password used by Mark Zuckerberg on a number of other social networks.
At the time of the hack Twitter suspended Zuckerberg's account.
But that has since been fixed.
The tweet posted by [INAUDIBLE] team was also deleted.
By the way, people are selling t-shirts with Zuckerberg's password on it already.
This should be reminded to everyone, including me, do not use the same password on multiple sites.
That's it for this tech news update.
