The Washington Post Affected by Syrian Electronic Army Hack (TheWrap / MediaAlley)
The Washington Post and several other media websites were hacked on Thursday — sort of. The popular link referral service Outbrain (which TheWrap also uses) was infiltrated by the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA), causing its links to go to SEA websites. This was the second major hack by the SEA in the past three days. Though The Washington Post reported that it was hacked, that appears not to be exactly accurate — the SEA provided screenshots of its work to E Hacking News showing that it was actually Outbrain that was compromised. NYT A spokeswoman for Time, Jane Lehman, said the company’s sites were not hacked and the security was not compromised. “The content on some of our sites provided by Outbrain was impacted by the hacking activity at Outbrain,” she said. CNN also said its sites were not directly penetrated. “The security of a vendor plug-in that appeared on CNNi.com was briefly compromised,” it said in a statement. “The issue was quickly identified and plug-in disabled.” The Washington Post / Ask The Post Washington Post managing editor Emilio Garcia-Ruiz: “A few days ago, the Syrian Electronic Army, allegedly, subjected Post newsroom employees to a sophisticated phishing attack to gain password information. The attack resulted in one staff writer’s personal Twitter account being used to send out a Syrian Electronic Army message.” HuffPost The SEA has gone after many media organizations, including the Financial Times, Reuters and ITV News. Most notably, it sent out a false tweet from the account of the Associated Press, saying that there had been an attack on the White House. The stock market briefly plummeted before the tweet was confirmed to be fake.

Bleacher Report Founder Launches Women-Centric Site

Bryan Goldberg, the founder of Bleacher Report, is bringing his ideas  — love them or hate them — to women. His new site, Bustle, is now live. Goldberg described Bustle as “next generation” about 17 times in an interview with Business Insider, so we guess that’s what it is.

While there’s plenty of B/R inspired content on Bustle (“6 News Stories That (Briefly) Freaked People Out” is the most popular article right now) at least all of Bustle’s writers are paid. And Goldberg explains in a post on PandoDaily that the editorial team  — an all female cast — was collected from “Entertainment Weekly, Glamour, Daily Beast, TheStir, Seventeen, and other top publications” so there’s some real talent there.

Goldberg raised $6.5 million to launch Bustle, so you can expect it to stick around. Only time will tell if people will be happy about that.

As Expected, Turner Broadcasting Acquires Bleacher Report

Think of it as the AOL-Huffington Post deal of the sports journalism world.

The Bleacher Report, a brash San Francisco-based startup powered largely by unpaid editors, writers and interns, has finally been acquired by Turner Broadcasting. Various reports peg the purchase price at between $175 million to $200 million. Either way, it’s a home run for the site’s creators.

From Jeremy C. Owens of the San Jose Mercury News:

Six years after founding a website meant to offer sports fans a place to talk about their favorite teams, four Menlo High School graduates have sold the product…
