The breach, which took place just before 1pm BST, is just the latest in a spate of attacks against media organisations including The Guardian and the Associated Press.

The FT blogs webpage portrayed the message "Hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army" and Twitter accounts including the Lex Column and FT Markets tweeted "The Syrian Electronic Army was here" to hundreds of thousands of followers.

A spokeswoman from the Financial Times confirmed the hack this afternoon and said the organisation was "working to resolve" the problems "as quickly as possible".
