‘Dadada’ not a good password, Mark Zuckerberg is warned after weekend hack
It is likely that the leaked data included the ID and password of the Facebook CEO’s LinkedIn account and that Zuckerberg utilized the same password for its different accounts also. The secret key was “dadada” according to the hacking group.
OurMine Team even claimed to have gained access to the Facebook CEO’s Instagram account. However, Facebook later confirmed that Zuckerberg’s Instagram account was untouched. “No Facebook systems or accounts were accessed,” a Facebook spokesperson told VentureBeat website in a statement. “The affected accounts have been re-secured.”
Recently it was accounted for that Facebook secretly recorded people’s conversations with no appropriate disclosure. However, the social media giant later confirmed that the organization does not hijack into the cell phone’s microphone to show promotions or to change client’s preferences in News Feed.
