Syrian hacker group pops FT Twitter account, website
The Twitter feed of the Financial Times has been suspended after it was hacked and malicious links posted.
Both the Twitter account and website of the FT were hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army hacker group.
Stories on the FT’s website had headlines replaced by ‘Hacked by Syrian Electronic Army’ and messages on its Twitter feed read: “Do you want to know the reality of the Syrian ‘Rebels?'” followed by a link to a video. The hacking group was a supporter of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Its attack on FT followed a phishing attack against company staff.
