Hacker Vows to hack and delete Mark Zuckerberg Facebook page.

Chang Chi-yuan, a Taiwanese hacker has vowed he would take down Facebook CEO Mark Zukerberg Facebook page in a live broadcast before saying he won’t do it anymore since the media got a whiff of his plan

Chang Chi-yuan told his 27,000 followers he would target the social media founder’s own account this Sunday. Then he backtracked today and said he would instead demand money from Facebook in return for flagging the bug to them. He added that he had not expected the world’s media to pick up on his plans.

Chang describes himself as a “bug bounty-hunter” who claims to have exposed flaws in a series of high-profile companies’ security systems, Bloomberg reports.

In the post he said: “Broadcasting the deletion of Facebook founder Zuck’s account. Scheduled to go live”.

Some commenters had criticised his plans, with one saying: “Listen man, if you really have a bug that can take over Zuck’s page, I don’t recommended you do it.  You can just inform them about that bug and you will get rewarded for this.”
