Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg’s Twitter and Pinterest accounts were hacked over the weekend.
A hacker group by the name of OurMine Team claimed to have gained access to Zuckerberg’s social media accounts via Twitter. The group’s Twitter account has been suspended, for now.
“Hey @finkd, you were in Linkedin Database with the password ‘dadada’ !,” the team wrote from Zuckerberg’s Twitter page.
On his Pinterest, the new title was “Hacked by OurMine Team.”
Although the reports have not been able to verify the details as to how the group managed to hack Zuckerberg’s accounts, OurMine Team claims the hack was made possible using the LinkedIn password dump that happened few weeks ago.
OurMine Team even claimed to have gained access to the Facebook CEO’s Instagram account. However, Facebook later confirmed that Zuckerberg’s Instagram account was untouched. “No Facebook systems or accounts were accessed,” a Facebook spokesperson told VentureBeat website in a statement. “The affected accounts have been re-secured.”
