Couldn't say he didn't ask for it...

Recently the famed Facebook inventor Mark Zuckerberg has had a little trouble with his account. Yes, he has an account just like yours, and he is just as susceptible to hacks as anyone else.

The hack was performed recently in the midst of Facebook holding its "Hacker's Cup". So it can't be said that no one saw this coming; thousands of hackers from all over the world were invited to take part in activities to prove their cred.

So while all these programmers, hackers and hobbyists were invited to the server, Mark's page became the target. Not very much was modified on the page apart from some posts that were rather non-supportive of the recent interactions between the social networking site and the banks of the US.

Cheers to those moments when the obvious happens and still some people pretend to be surprised!
