Even Mark Zuckerberg isn't safe from hackers.

This week a message popped up on Mark's Facebook fan page that read, "Let the hacking begin: If facebook needs money, instead of going to the banks, why doesn't Facebook let its users invest in Facebook in a social way? Why not transform Facebook into a 'social business' the way Nobel Price winner Muhammad Yunus described it? What do you think? #hackercup2011"
The next day the fan page was removed, but Facebook didn't make any statements about the hacking that would assure users it's not going to happen to them.

Graham Cluley, a senior technology consultant at a computer security company, says there are many way for a hacker to access your Facebook page.

"It's not clear if [Mark] was careless with his password, was phished, or sat down in a Starbucks and got sidejacked while using an unencrypted wireless network, but however it happened, it's left egg on his face just when Facebook wants to reassure users that it takes security and privacy seriously," Graham explains.

Facebook has come under harsh scrutiny for their privacy controls. Do you think the social networking site could do more to keep your information safe?
