Facebook CEO's Social Media Accounts Hacked

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, arguably one of the most influential people in the world and the man who helped propel our society into the age of social media, was the victim of yet another hacking group recently. The hackers, self-named OurMine, bragged about breaking into Zuckerberg's LinkedIn, Twitter, and Pinterest accounts. "Just testing your security," one message read.

Possible Preaching Angle:

The successful attack on such a high-profile technology icon represents a major trophy for the hackers, who undoubtedly viewed Zuckerberg as a personal challenge to their skills. But that's just how the world operates. Those with power, influence, or integrity become the most coveted targets for their enemies to bring down—especially when the enemy is Satan.
