Yesterday, social media accounts of Mark Zuckerberg was hacked by a group called OurMine Team. According to Engadget, Zuckerberg's Pinterest, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts were the ones that were hacked by the group.
The hack was said to be linked to the LinkedIn hack scandal which was dated last 2012. It seems that Mark has been using the same password for those accounts as to why the hackers were able to gain access to his accounts. The group tweeted a message to Zuckerberg which read: "Hey @finkd [Zuckerberg’s Twitter account name], you were in Linkedin Database".
Moments after the hack, the social media giants took down the messages and later deactivated the accounts.
Security experts advice users to immediately change ALL of their passwords in ALL of their accounts and NOT to have the same passwords for each account.
