Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook account hacked
PALO ALTO, Calif. (KGO) -- Palo Alto based Facebook is scrambling to fix a security flaw in its system that lets people view other members' private photos.
That's after hackers were able to access and publish private pictures of founder Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook says the bug enabled anyone to look at a limited number of recently uploaded photos, regardless of a person's privacy settings.
The social networking company says it has shut down the affected part of the system and will restore it after the bug is fixed.
