Mumbai: How far will you go to get a well-intentioned motive of yours heard? If you're this Palestinian Information Security Expert, you would not shy away from breaking into Mark Zuckerberg's profile to write him a wall post.
In a move that seems right out of the movies, Khalil, a Security Expert from Palestine, ended up writing on Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's wall to alert him of a bug. Khalil says he had to resort to the move after the social networking giant's security team failed to pay heed to his discovery of a critical vulnerability on it, reports RT.
