Yes, he is the hacker who had to post finally to Facebook CEO’s, so called the most protected wall, to communicate his success in hacking Facebook, which was otherwise denied by Facebook many times, though it was a genuine effort.

He, accepting Facebook challenge of finding out security vulnerabilities of Facebook, has put conclusive effort to find out a security loop-hole, which allowed him to post anybody’s wall on Facebook. This is a very big security concern as long as social networking giant user’s privacy is concern. When he tried to inform this to Facebook, they denied his reward claims, $500, even after he using Mark Zuckerberg’s wall to post to give proof of his claim.
