Mark Zuckerberg’s Social Media Accounts Hacked – and You’ll Never Guess What His Password Is

The Facebook founder’s Twitter and Pinterest password made public by hacker group OurMine

Even Mark Zuckerberg has fallen prey to a cardinal sin on the Internet: Using the same bad password for multiple accounts.

Zuckerberg’s Twitter and Pinterest accounts were compromised on Sunday by the hacker group OurMine, which has claimed responsibility for the breach. In a screengrab posted by Engadget, the group tweeted from Zuckerberg’s account that they were able to find his password — which they claim was “dadada” — because of the LinkedIn data breach in 2012.  

The Facebook founder’s Pinterest profile had also been changed to say “Hacked by OurMine Team.”

Though the group also claimed to have gained access to Zuckerberg’s Facebook-owned Instagram account, a Facebook Inc. spokesman confirmed to Engadget and the New York Times that both his Instagram and Facebook accounts were not breached.

Both of Zuckerberg’s accounts have since been secured, and the OurMine Team’s Twitter account was suspended following the hack. The group is now operating on its backup handle, @OurMineTeam43.

In a series of tweets, the group claims that it was just trying to test the security of Zuckerberg’s accounts.

The hack comes after a string of recent high-profile social media account breaches. Jack Black had been the victim of a fake death hoax — also on Sunday — after his band Tenacious D’s Twitter account had been hacked. Bon Iver, Keith Richards, and Tame Impala’s Twitter accounts were also compromised over the weekend, and Katy Perry‘s Twitter account had tweeted out a number of homophobic and racial slurs after it was hacked last Monday.
