CBS Twitter Feeds Compromised and Suspended

Twitter is facing difficulties as the CBS accounts of #60minutes and @48hours has been hacked. A group that goes by the name of the Syrian Electronic Army has claimed responsibility for this act of online security violation.

A Pro-Assad organization of hackers has shown its true colors by hacking two CBS Twitter feeds. The personnel at Twitter spoke of how they were sorry for the inconvenience this delay in normal operations may have caused users. The takeover has left some tweets with controversial contents. Furthermore, tweets with a decidedly Anti-Semitic tone are being posted by this fanatical group all set to sabotage the United States.

Some of the messages that came out in public view had negative and criminal minds behind them. “The US government is hiding the real culprit of the Boston bombing” was one such extremely disturbing tweet. Then there was the paranoid type that went “Obama wants to destroy the Syrian and American people.”  These bogus tweets were broke down later. The land to which this group of hackers belongs is Syria. A bloody civil war has been going on there since the past three years. Over 70,000 people have lost their lives and a million have become refugees.
 
The hijacked accounts have tall tales that remind one of conspiracy theories. It became quite apparent after a while that the sites for “60 Minutes” and “48 Hours” on Twitter were showing some odd messages that didn’t tally with the facts. The CBS Twitter feed of "60minutes" has undergone suspension since it was hacked. And it was displaying the fake and obviously obnoxious tweets.
