Syrian Electronic Army hackers claim to capture Facebook.com
If you find a good tactic and it works you stick with it, right? That certainly seems to be the case for the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA). Early in 2013 we watched them phish major media organizations in succession.
More recently they have moved on to more sophisticated techniques, mixing together social engineering, phishing, email hijacking and domain hijacking. Today, it was Facebook’s turn. It appears the SEA were able to gain access to an administrative panel at DNS provider MarkMonitor.
