Whoops! It seems Facebook can’t guarantee privacy for anyone, even its founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. Dozens of private photos of the Zuck were leaked today after his Facebook page was reportedly hacked.
The pics don’t reveal anything scandalous; they mostly feature Mark at home with his dog Beast and longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan, but the images are likely a source of embarrassment to the world’s youngest billionaire, nonetheless. Zuckerberg has yet to release a statement about the hack, but protecting user privacy has been a major concern for Facebook over the last few years, and many will view this leak as a confirmation of their suspicion that no one is safe.
The photos were made public by Mike Rundle, a North Carolina software engineer who says he found them on a hacker news discussion board. A Facebook spokesperson blames a bug in the website’s reporting tool for the fact that the hack was not caught earlier.
