    CALLS for improved security at Facebook could get some high profile backing after private pictures of the website's founder Mark Zuckerburg were hacked and made public. The social networking site has long been criticised for failing to adequately protect its users' data and Zuckerberg has now become the victim of a security loophole that allowed a hacker to gain access to his personal pictures and download them.

    According to the Sydney Morning Herald the flaw, which was admitted by Facebook, was made public on a body-building forum "along with step-by-step instructions on how to obtain access to the private photos of any Facebook user".
