It appears that Facebook’s CEO has fallen victim to his own security glitch.

According to Daily Mail, Mark Zuckerberg’s private photos were exposed when an expert accessed them by means of a site malfunction. A bug in the social media site’s photo reporting tool allowed users to see others’ pictures, even if they were private. Users were able to look at the private photos by simply reporting a profile picture as “inappropriate.”

A Facebook spokesman told CNET that the problem occurred because of a recent code push, Daily Mail reports. The site assures users that the mishap was only live for a short time, and has since been fixed.
