The real problem behind the hacking of celebrities fan pages of Facebook accounts like Mark Zuckerberg and Sarkozy

Last Sunday night, it appeared the French premier was abandoning his plans to run for re-election in 2012, at least that’s what you could read on his Facebook page. The fact is that they weren’t Sarkozy’s words. If you looked very carefully you could see some misspelling and missing accents within the message that stated in French:  “Dear compatriots, given the exceptional circumstances our country is experiencing, I have decided in my spirit and conscience not to run for office again at the end of my mandate in 2012.” Of course the message was not his own but came from the hacker. 

But it seems that he was not the only one recently affected as we saw another strange message earlier today on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s fan page.
