Zuckerberg’s Private Photos Exposed Through Facebook Bug

It is no secret that Facebook has a lot of privacy protection issues, and now the latest one of them has hit the site's creator Mark Zuckerberg himself.

The new flaw was discovered by members of a body building forum and it was used successfully to access people's private photos until Facebook plugged the hole.

The flaw took advantage of a feature in the "Report Abuse" tool. When a Facebook user reports a picture for "nudity or pornography," the tool presented him with a list of other photos from the same user so that he can report them as well. Problem is, this list ignored the user's privacy settings.

Facebook disabled the "Report Abuse" tool temporary until the issue is fixed, but not before private photos of Mark Zuckerberg made their way to the internet.
