Before reading any posts on HNB, we would like to tell you that every post here is for your online security, safety or for awareness, and we do not teach hacking through our articles, if you find something which is being used to damage your online property or something like that, REPORT HERE.

It looks like that the Facebook account of the researcher cum hacker “KHALIL” who hacked Mark Zuckerberg timeline to report his bug has been hacked or Khalil may be kidding with people.

We just saw a post on his timeline which reads:

I’m not a hacker , I just want to warn Mr Khalil !
He will recover his account soon …
I’m sorry everybody .

Below is the screenshot of the timeline and the post was posted 35 minutes ago from the time, we published the post:

Last Month, Khalil hacked Mark Zuckerberg timeline to report a Bug. Researcher  initially reported the vulnerability through Facebook’s “white hat” security disclosure service, which offers a minimum bounty of $500 for legitimate bugs.

Unfortunately the Facebook team replied him with ”sorry this is not a bug”.

After the reply researcher shows out the vulnerability through a post on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s profile, in the post he apologized for the post but said “he had no other choice.”

If we found the hack of Khalil account a Fake, we will update this news.

UPDATE- Now, Facebook has removed Khalil’s account and it could be for a temporary purpose.

2. Now, Khalil account has been recovered and he confirms about this hack and told us ” my account hacking started 2 weeks ago as every one knows about the facebook bounty”, he also stated “that was a Brute force attack”
