Mark Zuckerberg Hacked; Private Photos Leaked Because of Facebook Glitch

Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook page was hacked in the latest privacy breach on the social networking site.  

A series of 14 personal photos were posted on the website Imgur under the heading “It’s time to fix those security flaws, Facebook.” They include one picture of the Facebook CEO holding a dead chicken.

Facebook says the glitch resulted from a bug in one of its tools that lets users report inappropriate images and that the site was vulnerable for only a short period of time.

The breach comes a week after Facebook reached a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission, agreeing among other things to make sure that the privacy of users’ information is protected.
