Bug: Facebook page administrator may remove the owner

Facebook page hack hijack remove administrators ownerSo here's another bug in Facebook pages. A video uploaded by Naked Security shows how a new administrator of a Facebook page can remove the original administrator, the page owner.

There are two scenarios here. One is that you have a trusted friend or colleague who you ask to help you administer a Facebook page. Even if they have the best intentions, their Facebook account may get compromised (perhaps their passwords are phished or cracked) giving a stranger the chance to hijack the Facebook page you created.

The other possibility is that you gave a stranger admin access to your Facebook page.
