An anonymous user posted private pictures of Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg on some other sites. Under which, the poster said Facebook needs to do something to handle privacy accounts goof ups.
It is not for the first time when such thing has happened, and to raise this issue and put the point across their minds, hacker seems to have done this act which shows loose security. Facebook officials have caught hold of the problem and they think it would not happen again.
Data system has been disabled by them and they would not restart it till they get sure that this would not happen again. Facebook officials said, "Upon discovering the bug, we immediately disabled the system, and will only return functionality once we can confirm the bug has been fixed".
The hacker posted 14 pictures of Zuckerberg in which, he is seen with his girlfriend. In some of the pictures, he is seen cooking and is sitting with his friends in others. There is also one photo where he is seen with the US President Barack Obama.
Recently, on another website, dubbed Bodybuilding, steps were given through which one could invade other person's privacy in his Facebook account. In this procedure, instruction was given to teach how to upload pictures of other person.
Some other things that were told step-by-step were how to access private folders of other Facebook account holders and how to put it on other websites. This goof up dates five years back and since then, 10 people have given written complaints against them.
There are more than 800 million users on Facebook, and there is no idea how many of them are affected daily due to such security hassles. All these cases demand one thing and that is to establish a comprehensive privacy program.
