CNN Social Accounts Hacked by Syrian Electronic Army
 
 

Hack was retaliation for reporting

Another high profile hack of a major news organization's social network accounts has happened. The Syrian Electronic Army has announced that it hacked the twitter and Facebook pages of CNN yesterday. CNN says that the unauthorized posts and tweets were removed within minutes.

The SEA says that it hacked CNNs accounts as retaliation. The retaliation was against CNN for "viciously lying reporting aimed at prolonging the suffering [in Syria]." This isn't the first hack the SEA has claimed this month.


Earlier in the month, the same hacker group attacked Skype and other Microsoft social media pages and blogs. That hack was done as retaliation for Microsoft allegedly selling customer data to governments. CNN says that it hacked accounts and blogs are now secure. Of course CNN though they were secure before the attacks too.
