Only Safe on Facebook: Mark Zuckerberg’s Twitter, Pinterest Hacked

, 3:53 PM IST

Washington: Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder and CEO of social media giant Facebook, became a victim of hacking over the weekend when his Twitter and Pinterest accounts were compromised, according to a media report.

OurMine Team, the group behind the hacking, claimed that it was possible due to the LinkedIn password dump that happened a few weeks ago, technology website VentureBeat reported on Sunday.

OurMine’s Twitter account now stands suspended.

Millions of LinkedIn user account details were leaked online last month and the company reacted by invalidating the credentials and contacting affected members to reset their passwords, the report said.
