Facebook Is No Longer Safe! Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook Page HACKED

Khalil Shreateh (pictured above) first contacted the Facebook security team after proving a glitch was real by writing on the wall of a friend of the Facebook founder.
But instead of thanking him and fixing the issue, Facebook said it wasn't a bug. And because of the methods Shreateh used to finally convince them of the threat, Facebook later denied him the reward usually given to programmers who report holes in the site’s security. See his letter below:
‘My name is Khalil Shreateh. I finished school with B.A degree in Information Systems . I would like to report a bug in your main site (www.facebook.com) which i discovered it...The bug allow Facebook users to share links to other facebook users ,
I tested it on Sarah.Goodin wall and I got success post.’
However, instead of repairing the obvious security breach, Facebook replied to Shreateh by saying the issue ‘was not a bug.’
Undeterred, Shreateh used the glitch to hack his way onto Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook page and wrote:
‘Sorry for breaking your privacy,’ he wrote in a since removed post to Zuckerberg, ‘I had no other choice…after all the reports I sent to Facebook team.’
Minutes later, his pleas were answered. Facebook contacted him demanding to know how he’d hacked their bosses personal page.
‘We fixed this bug on Thursday,’ wrote Matt Jones from Facebook’s security team in a Saturday post on Hacker News.
Facebook has a bounty program designed to bribe hackers into reporting glitches they find rather than exploiting them. Such validated reports are worth $500.
But in his post, Jones explains that Shreateh will not be getting his money.
‘In order to qualify for a payout you must "make a good faith effort to avoid privacy violations" and "use a test account instead of a real account when investigating bugs,”’ Jones writes.
Shreateh now claims that Facebook has disabled his account.
