Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook Page Hacked

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Paul Sakuma

First Nikolas Sarkozy. Now Mark Zuckerberg.

Somebody hacked Zuckerberg's Facebook page, leaving an odd status update that suggested the company should let people invest in it rather than "going to the banks."

The hack occurred some time on Tuesday.

The message 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 Prize winner Muhammad Yunus described it? What do you think? #hackercup2011."

In a statement, Facebook blamed the hack on a bug that allowed unauthorized status updates "on a handful" of public pages. Facebook said the bug has since been fixed.

The security firm Sophos has more here. On Monday, someone hacked Sarkozy's page, announcing he would step down as France's president next year.
