Victim in: 2011
Even the world's most famous hacker isn't immune to cyber attack. Mark Zuckerberg, the social network founder who notably compromised the internal Harvard University system for his website FaceMash.com, which preceded Facebook, had his own profile page hacked last January. After news had passed that Facebook accepted $450 million in private funding from Goldman Sachs, an unnamed web user posted a cryptic message as the CEO's status update, suggesting Facebook allow its members to purchase a stake in the site: "If facebook (sic) needs money, instead of going to the banks, why doesn't Facebook let its users invest in Facebook in a social way?"
The social network's programmers quickly fixed the bug that allowed the message to be posted to Zuckerberg's page.
