If you’ve heard that there are some private pictures of Mark Zuckerberg’s floating around on the Internet, you heard right. The CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg got his photos hacked and released to the public after a Facebook bug gave any user access to private photos on anyone’s Facebook account.
Facebook had just recently been having issues with nude photos going on it’s social network and implemented some fixed to improve the ways for people to report photos like this. If someone were to report a photo for “nudity or pornography” they were also allowed to go into the person’s other photos and select multiple photos to report for this offense.
Mashable interviewed Facebook about the rogue code that allowed people to hack Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook photos. Facebook told the popular social media news website, “This was the result of one of our recent code pushes and was live for a limited period of time. Upon discovering the bug, we immediately disabled the system, and will only return functionality once we can confirm the bug has been fixed.”
Even though the bug has been fixed and people can’t view private photos anymore unauthorized, someone grabbed a pile of Mark Zuckerberg’s private photos in his album and posted them publicly on a blog. You can view over 14 different private pictures of Mark Zuckerberg at the blog.
