The Verge: LinkedIn ignored security flaw from researcher who hacked Zuckerberg’s Facebook wall

The Verge: LinkedIn ignored security flaw from researcher who hacked Zuckerberg’s Facebook wall. “Khalil Shreateh, a self-professed IT expert from Palestine, hit the headlines four years ago when he hacked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s wall. Shreateh was frustrated that Facebook was ignoring a big security flaw, so demonstrating it on Zuckerberg’s own Facebook wall was an easy way to get the company to act. Shreateh discovered a security flaw in LinkedIn last month, and he reached out to The Verge after becoming frustrated that the company was ignoring his report — just like four years ago.”
