Washington Post Hacked by Supporters of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad

Astonishingly, the recently acquired Washington Post appears to have been hacked by a pro Assad group in Syria. The New York Times was possibly attacked yesterday, but is claiming it was an ‘internal issue’. From the Editors at the WaPo:

The Washington Post Web site was hacked today, with readers on certain stories being redirected to the site of the Syrian Electronic Army. The group is a hacker collective that supports Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The Post is working to resolve the issue.

Ben Cohen is the editor and founder of The Daily Banter. He lives in Washington DC where he does podcasts, teaches Martial Arts, and tries to be a good father. He would be extremely disturbed if you took him too seriously.
