Palestinian hacker and computer expert Khalil Shreateh just got famous last weekend after he hacked into Mark Zuckerberg’s personal Facebook account and posted messages regarding an apparent hole in the security system.
Khalil Shreateh, who by the way uses Edward Snowdens Photo as his Facebook avatar, says he was forced to tell Mark personally about the security problem. Why? Because he had previously informed Facebook’s security department about the error, and only got arrogant answers denying any mistakes.
Well they were wrong and Khalil told them by hacking Zuckerberg’s account and posting a status from it.
‘Sorry for breaking your privacy,’ he wrote in a since removed post to Zuckerberg, ‘I had no other choice…after all the reports I sent to Facebook team.’
After he did that it was only a matter of minutes before the security team fixed the problem.
The young Palestinian who restrained himself from using the situation to tell the world about the Occupation of his country, had hoped for the $500 reward that Facebook promises to hackers who successfully point out holes in their security system. In addition to Facebook, Microsoft, Google, and Mega all reward hackers who point out flaws in their coding with a cash prize.
Although Khalil’s innovative method of revealing the problem to Mark Zuckerberg probably earned Facebook a ton of PR equaling a lot of money, Facebook is holding holding out, stating Khalil’s intrusive methods broke the rules!
On the internet people are speculating that Khalil won’t get paid because he is an Arab. He might just have embarrassed the people that where supposed to pay him, but who knows…
2Famous.TV has asked Khalil what made him forget to post FREE PALESTINE from Mark Zuckerbergs account, when he had the chance! If he thought it would give him a bigger chance on the reward, he was obviously wrong!

Jewish British MP Sir Gerald Kaufman discussing the situation in Israel!
“Most of my parents’ families – because my parents came here as refugees – most of my parents families were murdered in the Holocaust.
