You can easily hack into the private pictures of anyone with a Facebook account, and that’s exactly what happened to Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.
All you need to do is get the use name of the person you want to hack, check a public picture of them AND then report it as inappropriate\nude. This will allow you to report more pictures of that user, even if they are private.
I would assume that this new hack is embarrassing to Zuckerberg, especially after the numerous and multiple criticism of Facebook’s weak privacy and security issues over the years. So it’s a good thing that this has happened to him, it might encourage him to implement better security and privacy rules.
And of ourse, the biggest lesson to be learned here is: don’t ever post inappropriate private pictures, thinking that they’ll be completely safe and private on Facebook.
On a final and un-related note, Facebook is having one of the biggest IPOs ever. It’s estimated at $10 billion, to be done sometime around April-June 2012. Google till holds the largest IPO record of any internet\tech Co. at $1.4 billion, so you can imagine how huge the Facebook IPO is going to be.
A $10 billion IPO is a huge deal. Only a few companies have ever crossed that barrier; and they include giant American corporations like AT&T, VISA, and General Motors.
