Twitter Hackers Own Up

Well it’s nothing new but another Twitter was hacked.Entertainment news outlet E!’s Twitter account was hacked Saturday, tweeting fake headlines about Justin Bieber, Angelina Jolie and the conflict in Syria. Now The Syrian Electronic Army, a group of hackers aligned with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, is claiming responsibility for the hack.

 

How crazy and messed up is this? I mean I’m not sure want claiming responsibility for the hack means and then this may stir up questions as to just how many more Twitter accounts are they responsible for that we just don’t know about?

 

And it appears that they have been up to no good. “The Syrian Electronic Army was also responsible for hacking the Associated Press Twitter account last month, sending a false story about an attack on the White House that had a temporary but serious impact on the financial markets.”
