Report: Egyptian Hacker Removes Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook Timeline Cover Photo

February 15, 2014


On February 15, it was reported that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s cover photo had been removed from his Facebook page.

Egyptian hacker “Dr. FarFar” claimed to have hacked the Facebook account and removed the photo. The report noted that Zuckerberg had apparently not noticed that the photo had been removed.

Previously in August 2013, a Palestinian programmer discovered a security flaw in Facebook that allowed him to post to Zuckerberg’s Facebook account without his permission.

A Facebook spokesman noted that there was no merit to the claim and added, “We have confirmed there was no suspicious activity on the account.”
