Not a good week for Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg.

His very own Facebook account has been hacked and his photos have been shared online. Due to a faulty security setting, some hackers allegedly used the opportunity to highlight the bug in the social networking site, posting 14 photos with the message, “It’s time to fix those security flaws Facebook.”

According to BusinessWeek, this latest security flaw “allowed users to gain access to the billionaire businessman’s private pictures. Facebook blamed a software error in a feature that lets users report inappropriate content. The company said the error was quickly fixed, but some people were able to view a limited number of other people’s photos, even if they were marked as private and meant for a small circle of friends.”
