Hacker to Delete Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook Page, Live, This Weekend

By Gary Cutlack on at

A Taiwanese hacker is about to hit the big time – or fail in an embarrassingly public manner – as he's preparing to launch a public attack on the personal Facebook profile of Mark Zuckerberg, the man who, you know, invented it. Or at least, you know, copied the idea best and made it legally his own.

Chang Chi-yuan makes a bit of a living through taking on the bounty-paying bug hunts offered by the major software manufacturers, so he ought to have the level of the skills required to pull this off, and has presumably already identified the shadowy backdoor he'll be using to delete the /zuck from his very own internet.

The only thing we need to do to enjoy the show is open up a couple of tabs for Chang's live stream and Zuckerberg's profile, and then work out what 6pm Taiwanese local time is equal to here in the UK. We think they're seven hours ahead over there, so the streamed hackathon should kick off at 11am here. [Bloomberg]
