Zuckerberg's Twitter And Pinterest Accounts Hacked by LegendAllegro: 9:24am On Jun 06, 2016

Despite your dexterity in tech and software, it is certain that you can contemplate the loopholes rife in software programming. This is typical of the recent security breach of Mike Zuckerberg's Twitter and Pinterest accounts.

The Facebook CEO and social media phenomenon had both his Twitter and Pinterest accounts hijacked by OurMine Team, a hacker group, Sunday. The group which prides itself in hacking into people's accounts posted on Zuckerberg's Pinterest's account:
"Hey, @finkd You were in Linkedin Database with the password "dadada"! DM for proof..." 

The security breach is reported to have resulted from the massive Linkedin database fail which revealed the password of about 100 Million users.

While these two platforms are not subsidiaries of Facebook nor is Zuckerberg directly responsible for their security, the breach may have resulted in the use of a single password for multiple social media accounts. The group also claimed to have access to his Instagram account, which is this case is a subsidiary of Facebook.

However, it is believed that Zuckerberg had not tweeted since 2012, sparking speculations that the password to the accounts may be reflective of his current passwords to his other social media platforms, especially his brainchild Facebook.

OurMine Team Twitter account has however been suspended by Twitter.

Iwon't be surprise if those behind the hack are teenagers in Europe or Asia
