Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook page was apparently hacked

Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook page was apparently hacked according to a latest news report. The attacker modified the page with a message, in the same way the French President Nicholas Sarkozy’s page was compromised two days ago. While the needle of suspicion points to the use of a simple login and password over an unencrypted link, what should not be missed is the targeted nature of the attack against the two people, who one would think would be the most secure.

In my opinion the compromise could be an insider job or an exploitation of a technical flaw in Facebook. I am eagerly awaiting the outcome of the investigations.

 For the 400 million plus Facebook users like myself, this is a waking up call to set complex passwords, frequently change them and not to login in to websites which do not use SSL over unsecured WIFI networks in public places.
