/// Facebook Responds to Zuckerberg Profile Hack: Our Bad (Sorta)
If at first you don’t succeed, get a supervisor’s attention. Or, in this case, that of the chief executive officer. A Palestinian hacker posted a Facebook security vulnerability to CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s wall earlier this week, in an attempt to alert the company to the problem after his initial reports to Facebook’s security team were rebuffed. The hacker, who goes by the name of “Khalil,” discovered a flaw that allowed users to make posts to others’ Timeline pages without being connected to them on Facebook. Khalil said he tried reporting it to the security team earlier in the week, but made little initial headway. Consequently, he made the post on Zuckerberg’s wall by using the vulnerability itself, a high-profile way (so to speak) of getting security’s attention
