Yes! you all are reading it right, even Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s Twitter and Pinterest accounts got hacked over the weekend. The hacker group, ‘OurMine Team’ claimed to have the access to all the Zuckerberg’s social media accounts.
The reports of how the group was able to hack Zuckerberg’s accounts still have no information to say whereas the OurMine Team claimed that they were able to hack his accounts using the LinkedIn password dump. LinkedIn last month invalidated user accounts because of the set of leaked data including the emails and hashed passwords of 100 million LinkedIn users. The password breach also happened back in the year 2012.

It is possible that the OurMine Team got the ID and Password of Mark Zuckerberg’s LinkedIn account from that leaked data.
According to OurMine Team, Mark Zuckerberg’s Twitter and Pinterest accounts shared the same funny password “dadada”.
Due to further security measures, Twitter suspended the account of OurMine team to which this is how the hacker’s group reacted.
This is Mark Zuckerberg’s opinion about such little things like clothes and passwords.
“I really want to clear my life to make it so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community. I’m in this really lucky position, where I get to wake up every day and help serve more than a billion people. And I feel like I’m not doing my job if I spend any of my energy on things that are silly or frivolous about my life.”
