    Just came across this article, an IT expert found a exploit that lets you post on anyone's wall without being their friend. He sent an email to FB twice telling them to fix it and they did nothing so this guy goes ahead and posts on Mark Zuckerbergs wall to tell him about it.

    Here's the link

    If only this guy knew how much he could have made with this exploit and some CPA offers...easily over $100k a day, instead he'll get a few hundred dollars from FB for helping close this loophole. Stupid morals....

    After receiving the third bug report, a Facebook security engineer finally admitted the vulnerability but said that Khalil won't be paid for reporting it because his actions violated the website's security terms of service.

    I guess that next time he will consider the CPA route as a result of the appreciation.

    lol I didn't read that far into the article. That's depressing for the dude and he must be pissed, someone should message him explaining how much he could really make from exploiting facebook :D

    I can see lots of viral FB scripts use this method only. So now most of them will be patched.

    Sounds like bs, total crap. If he is that smart to find this exploit, he would use it.
    Even if its working, he is the only one able to see this posts

    why is it bs? maybe he doesnt know anything about online marketing? or maybe he just assumed facebook wouldnt be dick and they would pay the 20,000$ for finding the hole. im sure 20,000$ is a ton of money for this dude who probably still lives at home with his parents.

    At least he had the chance to build some great big fan pages with real fans :D

    you think they would have been gents and paid him his money considering his intentions were to help. Mine wouldn't have been if I had the chance to post on marks wall it would have been a "facebook approved iphone giveaway"
