A few days ago, the Washington Post’s mobile website was taken offline. The Syrian Electronic Army claimed responsibility for the hacker attack and site takedown. Newspaper readers who visited the Washington Post’s mobile website saw a pop-up message claiming the following: “You’ve been hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army”. The SEA is known as the state-sponsored hacking collective that has targeted everyone critical of the Assad regime, especially media companies.

The Syrian Electronic Army also infected its targets with other pop-up messages, including, for example, “US government is training the terrorist to kill more Syrians” or “The media is always lying”.

In result of the hack, the Washington Post’s mobile homepage, as well as some section fronts on the paper’s mobile website, were redirected to an online portal that claimed to be operated by the Syrian Electronic Army. However, soon the Washington Post’s chief information officer issued a statement saying that the problem has been solved. The representatives of the newspaper particularly stressed that no customer information suffered during the hack.

Indeed, the takedown in question was quite brief – it lasted just a bit more than 30 minutes. However, the security experts point out that this time it was a far more serious breach than the typical targets of the Syrian Electronic Army like social media accounts or ad servers. The statistics and information obtained by security specialists revealed that the hacking attack took control of the Washington Post’s content delivery network. Besides, hackers managed to redirect visitors to a different server.

No avatarSo what dingbat would go to all the trouble of hacking a propaganda rag (that often publishes untrue stuff too) like the Washington Post?
