Facebook Denies Hacker Removed Mark Zuckerberg’s Cover Photo

Mark Zuckerberg's cover photo removed

An Egyptian hacker claims to have removed the cover photo from the profile of Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook says there’s no evidence of suspicious activity on the account.

According to The Hacker News, the cover photo from Zuckerberg’s official account was missing at some point. The Egyptian hacker, called “Dr.FarFar,” claims to have used the “I don’t like a photo I’m tagged in” feature with a request edited in the Fiddler debugging tool.

He has also published a video to demonstrate that the profile image from Zuckerberg’s account was gone at some point.

The cover photo from Zuckerberg’s profile was missing for a few hours on Saturday, but there’s no evidence that the hacker is responsible for it.

Facebook representatives have told The Hacker News that “there is no merit to this claim.”

“We have confirmed there was no suspicious activity on the account,” they said.
