    Zuckerberg's Facebook page hacked to prove security flaw

    A Palestinian researcher posted a message on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's page last week after he says the site's security team didn't take his warnings about a security flaw seriously.
    "First, sorry for breaking your privacy and post(ing) to your wall," wrote Khalil Shreateh. "I (have) no other choice to make after all the reports I sent to (the) Facebook team."
    Shreateh, who describes himself as an unemployed security researcher with a degree in information systems, said he found a hole in Facebook's systems that let him post to any user's page, including users not on his Friends list.
    Such an exploit would be a virtual gold mine for spammers, scam artists and others seeking to take advantage of the site's roughly 1 billion users worldwide.

    That's pretty funny. And not a huge surprise.

    My only question is why is this guy unemployed. Probably not for long after this.

    Zuckerberg should immediately hire him.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Yeah, no ****. Making money is a non-religious enterprise.
