Mark Zuckerberg’s social network accounts hijacked by bragging hackers


Not even Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is safe from cyber-attacks. The billionaire has had his (non-Facebook) social networking accounts temporarily taken over by the hacker group OurMine, who bragged about it in the hijacked feeds.
Tweeting to its 41,000 Twitter followers, the group claimed Sunday to have compromised Zuck’s LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest accounts. Some were apparently defaced purely for bragging rights. It is not known whether any other accounts or email also suffered, according to Engadget.

Time Inc. says social networking site Myspace has been hacked


Time inc. on Tuesday confirmed reports that social networking subsidiary Myspace has been the victim of a hacking incident.

Shortly before the Memorial Day weekend, Myspace's security team became aware that stolen user login data was being made available in an online hacker forum. The compromised data includes a portion of Myspace usernames, passwords and email addresses, from the old Myspace platform prior to June 11, 2013 — when the site was relaunched with significant steps to strengthen account security.
