Reuters hacked twice in 48 hours; pro-Syrian government stories, Tweets posted
The Reuters news service suffered a second successful hacker attack this weekend, just 48 hours after a computer intruder was able to post fake news stories on its web site. In Sunday’s attack, a small Reuters Twitter feed — @ReutersTech , with 17,000 followers — was briefly controlled by hackers.
“Earlier today @ReutersTech was hacked and changed to @ReutersME,” Reuters announced on its Twitter feed Sunday. “The account has been suspended and is currently under investigation.”
