The Syrian Electronic Army…. a band of digital activists and hackers who support the beleaguered government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The group, which claimed credit for the attacks via a statement on its website, has a history of attacking the websites and social media accounts of various western media organizations.
CBS removed several of the unauthorized tweets, and relayed this to followers Saturday: “PLEASE NOTE: Our Twitter account was compromised earlier today. We are working with Twitter to resolve.”
Currently — two days after the hack — the site renders as “Account Suspended.”
