The hack was enabled by the infamous LinkedIn hack in 2012. In one message, shared online, the OurMine team claimed to have found the Facebook founder's password in that dump, which was 'dadada'.

Yeah, I had a hard time believing he would use a password like that.

The hackers tweeted that they found Zuck's account credentials in the recent LinkedIn data breach, from which they took his SHA1-hashed password string and then broke it and tried on several social media accounts.
The group, which has more than 40,000 Twitter followers, then successfully broke into Zuck's Twitter (@finkd) and Pinterest profile and defaced its banners with its logo as well as tweeted out some offensive posts.
Mr. Zuckerberg has not sent a tweet from the account since 2012.
Now, what’s more surprising?
Zuckerberg's LinkedIn password was "dadada", which he also used for his other online accounts, the group tweeted.
