A Palestinian hacker who claims to have discovered a Facebook security flaw, took the issue straight to the top.

The flaw allowed anyone to post anything to anyone's page. After being ignored by Facebook's security team, Khalil Shreateh posted the issue on Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg's page to prove his point.

Within minutes, Shreateh was contacted by Facebook to get more details. The bug has since been fixed and Shreateh may get $500 for his efforts.
