Facebook Hackers Cup

Whoa after a week of hacking issues with regards to payment services like VISA, Mastercard, Paypal and others. Placing national security in grave threat, depriving national pride, and ruining business processes. Hackers may have these entire bad images as we know. But technically they’re pretty much techie geek to do such serious thing (but still awful anyway).
