Mark Zuckerberg’s Pinterest and Twitter accounts hacked by Ourmine
Ourmine, a hacking group that targets high profile entities has hacked Mark Zuckerberg. The group posted an update on its site, revealing the old and new Twitter passwords of Mark Zuckerberg. After the previous hack, Zuckerberg has added two factor authentication to his Twitter account. The Pinterest page of Zuckerberg was defaced with the group claiming the hack, and a link back to their site.
This is the second time this year that Ourmine has hacked Zuckerberg. In June this year, Ourmine had hacked the Twitter and Pinterest accounts owned by Zuckerberg.

Following the defacing, Ourmine emailed a CNet reporter informing him of the hack. Ourmine had also claimed that the Instagram account held by Zuckerberg was compromised. However, in a statement that Facebook gave to VentureBeat, there seems to be no such intrusion. The compromised accounts have been restored, and the defacement removed.
