Syrian Electronic Army Strikes Again: This Time Hits Washington Post


Syrian Electronic Army

The Washington Post is the latest victim of a group of hackers calling themselves the Syrian Electronic Army.

The group, which hacked the systems of publications like the New York Daily News last fall blocking users access to the sites for hours, also claimed to have hacked CNN and Time. They claim to be supporters of the Syrian dictator Bashir Assad.

A statement which the paper posted on its website read, “A group calling itself the Syrian Electronic Army briefly succeeded in redirecting readers of some articles on washingtonpost.com to the SEA’s own site. The organization supports Assad, who has led a long, bloody campaign to crush a rebellion in Syria.”

The SEA tweeted, “SEA Hacks @Washingtonpost mobile site in order to deliver a message.”

The Post has solved the problem, “We’ve taken defensive measures, and at this time there are no other issues affecting the site, ” said Emilio Garcia-Ruiz, The Post’s managing editor for digital.
