Taiwanese hacker Chang Chi-yuan says he’s going to livestream an attempt to delete Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook account. The stream will go live on Sunday at 6 p.m. local time in Taiwan, which is 3 a.m. in San Francisco where Facebook is headquartered.
A Taiwanese hacker announced to his 26,000 Facebook followers on Wednesday that he’s going to delete Mark Zuckerberg’s account — and people will be able to tune in live as he does it.
Chang posted on his Facebook page on Wednesday: “Live streaming the deletion of FB founder Zuck’s account. Scheduled to be live.” He did not provide any further detail about how he will achieve his aim.
The live video is scheduled for 6 p.m. local time on Sunday, which is 3 a.m. in San Francisco where Facebook is headquartered. It is also 6 a.m. in New York and 11 a.m. in the UK.
Chang has previously been named in Japanese tech firm Line Corp’s hall of fame of bug hunters as a “special contributor.” He was also reportedly sued by a bus operator for hacking its system and buying a ticket for just one Taiwanese dollar (about 3 US cents).
Zuckerberg’s account has been compromised before. In 2011 a hacker broke in and wrote a statuswhich began with the phrase “Let the hacking begin.” It was also reported in April that Facebook has deleted some of Zuckerberg’s private messages for fear he might get hacked.
Business Insider contacted Facebook to ask if it is bolstering security around Zuckerberg’s account.
