The Washington Post, CNN, Time Magazine Hacked by Supporters of Assad

Links redirected to the Syrian Electronic Army's website


The websites of three major U.S. news outlets have been hacked by supporters of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The Washington Post newspaper, CNN and Time magazine Thursday said hackers were redirecting certain news links to the website of the Syrian Electronic Army, a group that supports the Syrian president's regime. The media outlets say they have taken defensive measures and removed the offending module that caused their pages to be redirected.
