Syrian Electronic Army Hacks British TV Station Twitter Feed

Financial Times and the Associated Press have also previously been targeted


ITV Plc (ITV), owner of the U.K.'s biggest commercial TV station, suffered a Twitter account hack today with postings attributed to the "Syrian Electronic Army," a name also used last week when The Financial Times's social media accounts were infiltrated with links to war atrocity videos.

The @itvlondon account on Twitter Inc. posted six messages. One said "Francois Hollande to double aid to rebels, including a complementary French flag with every aid package," with a picture of a white flag against a blue, cloudy sky.
