A security flaw on Facebook temporarily allowed users to access other members' private photos -- including images posted in Mark Zuckerberg's friends-only collection. Several of the Facebook chief executive and founder's pictures were then uploaded to public sites on the Web.

According to ZDNet, Facebook users could access someone's private photos by using the site's image reporting tool. All someone had to do was:

* click on the report/block option
* select "inappropriate profile photo"
* choose the "nudity or pornography" option
* check "report to Facebook"
* click on the item marked "Help us take action by selecting additional photos to include with your report"

At that point, portions of the user's private photo collection were then revealed.

A member of a forum on BodyBuilding.com discovered the bug and posted a message about it, complete with step-by-step instructions and screen grabs.

After being notified of the problem, Facebook issued a statement that said it had disabled the reporting feature.

What I dont get is why does Mark Zuckerberg say we should all be social and have nothing private and yet he has private photo albums himself!

Cheeky bugger!

its the sign of the times my friend, but people are so distorted and confused that even the thought of having a private life is slowly being considered so retro and that you may be actually hiding something from someone, all in all too many assume too much without taking into consideration that the bigger they are the harder they fall.

This is not real news, this is spin.
It is ment to make you forget about the fact that facebook is used for spying and tracking its users, and also about recent security scares.
