Mark Zuckerberg Private photos leaked

A security flaw in Facebook’s image reporting system allowed someone to snatch up 14 private images from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s profile, which was then transferred over to a forum. The heading read “It’s time to fix those security flaws Facebook” and offered instructions on how to cheat the FB security system and gain access to other private photos. That’s as far as the leak traveled because the forum post was immediately taken down within a matter of minutes. Reports state the imperfection came from the way Facebook handles inappropriate image reports, exposing the bug and allowing cyber-criminals to snatch up images no matter the privacy setting. Facebook released the following statement in regards to the incident:

“We discovered a bug in one of our reporting flows that allows people to report multiple instances of inappropriate content simultaneously. The bug, was a result of one of our most recent code pushes and was live for a limited period of time. Not all content was accessible, rather a small number of one’s photos,” Facebook said in a statement.”

Its been said the stolen images from Zuckerberg’s account were nothing controversial. But for now, we recommend not uploading pics until the company gets its security measures in order. Just some advice.
