VIDEO: Mark Zuckerberg’s password choices are dadada-dumb!

Don't don't don't do do do dis dis dis.

As we all know by now, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had some of his social networking accounts hacked - quite possibly because he was reusing the same password. It appears that hackers found his password lying amongst the over 100 million credentials stolen from LinkedIn in 2012.

Fortunately for Zuckerberg, his Facebook wasn’t amongst those compromised (although he has had that hacked before).

But it appears that the hoodie-wearing Facebook chief wasn’t just committing the cardinal sin of reusing passwords.

It appears that he also failed to secure his Twitter, LinkedIn etc accounts with two-step verification - which would probably prevented anyone unauthorised from accessing the accounts even if they had managed to steal his password.

But more even that, it appears that Mark Zuckerberg’s password was extraordinarily dumb:


It beggars belief doesn’t it?

What a dumb f**k.

Oh, and Mark if you’re reading this… here are some helpful links about how you can enable two-step verification (2SV) on a variety of online accounts:

    Do you use language like this in your speaking engagements?

      It’s not inappropriate to quote the phrase “dumb f**k” when it is factually relevant. Click on the link where those words appear in the article and educate yourself.

        Not to mention it’s a direct quotation; even if it wasn’t relevant it would be more than fair even if just as a piss take. But given the name they use it’s (all of it) almost certainly above their head…
