Gawker reported that Powell’s page began posting offensive status reports that were aimed at former President George W. Bush, whose administration Powell was part of, and the hacker went as far as to threaten Facebook users who posted to Powell’s page to warn him that he had been hacked.
Powell, or the administrator of his page, credited Facebook with quick action, posting early Monday afternoon:
Dear Friends, I’m happy to report that the hacking problem has been fixed. We have been working with fb this morning and they took immediate action to remedy the situation.
Readers: Have you ever seen posts by hackers on the pages of brands or celebrities before they were removed?
