Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook pictures get haxored Hackers have posted 14 of Mark Zuckerberg's private Facebook pictures to the Internet in an effort to highlight a serious bug.
The pictures were uploaded to imgur with the headline "It's time to fix those security flaws Facebook."

After the incident, Facebook says it fixed the glitch, which was found in the tools that help users report inappropriate images.

Said Facebook of the glitch (via the Beeb):

Earlier today, we discovered a bug in one of our reporting flows that allows people to report multiple instances of inappropriate content simultaneously.

The bug allowed anyone to view a limited number of another user's most recently uploaded photos irrespective of the privacy settings for these photos.

This was the result of one of our recent code pushes and was live for a limited period of time. Upon discovering the bug, we immediately disabled the system, and will only return functionality once we can confirm the bug has been fixed.

Additionally, the site says the pictures of Zuckerberg are now in the public domain.

Zuckerberg has said that he'll only eat meat this year that he butchers. So presumably he's going to kill and pluck the chicken.

Sounds like some lying liars.
