Hackers go after Mark Zuckerberg

The Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Pinterest accounts of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg were compromised yesterday, the BBC reported.

Zuckerberg’s accounts were only briefly compromised, according to the report.

A hacker group called OurMine claimed responsibility on Twitter, inviting Zuckerberg to contact them.

Zuckerberg responded dismissively, telling the group: “No you didn’t. Go away skids.” (Script kiddies: a term for hackers who rely on tools from other hackers).

Based on screenshots from Engadget, OurMine responded by tweeting from Zuckerberg’s Twitter account, claiming to have found his LinkedIn password in a recent database leak.
