Some of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s Twitter,  Pinterest accounts were hijacked late Sunday, with the attackers posting messages with his Twitter account used to showing off their success.

The hacker(s), who use the name ‘OurMine Group’ claiming the attack was a “test” and requesting Zuckerberg to get in contact.

“Hey @finkd we got access to your Twitter & Instagram & Pinterest, we are just testing your security, please dm us, ” the group tweeted.

Ourmine’s Twitter account has since been suspended.

Guess what the 32-year-old CEO password was? “dadada.”

His security mistake was: he used the same password on Twitter and Pinterest.

Facebook issued a statement following the breach, saying that the hack was not related to its own security.

“No Facebook systems or accounts were accessed, ” a Facebook spokesperson said. “The affected accounts have been re-secured.”
