'Syrian Electronic Army' hacks Marines website ...

Post  fshnski on Tue Sep 03, 2013 9:09 am

WASHINGTON — Pro-Assad computer hackers today broke into the Marine Corps recruiting website, redirecting visitors to a screed that called President Barack Obama "a traitor who wants to put your lives in danger to rescue al- Qaida insurgents."

A Marine Corps spokesman confirmed that the site, marines.com, was tampered with and redirected temporarily, but no information was put at risk.

Capt. Eric Flanagan wouldn't say who was responsible for the hacking, but the site was redirected to a message from the Syrian Electronic Army, a hacker group that's claimed responsibility for disrupting the New York Times website, Twitter and other media sites the group sees as sympathetic to Syria's rebels.

The message to the Marine Corps was a plea for Americans to fight alongside the Syrian army and not aide the rebels.
