The Syrian Electronic Army Says It's Hacked Obama's Twitter Account

By Adam Clark Estes on at

In just latest of many head-turning exploits, the Syrian Electronic Army now says it's broken into Barack Obama's Twitter account and website. Indeed, the hacker organisation showed images of the website's backend and Obama campaign email accounts.

While the Obama Twitter account hasn't gone wild (as with other attacks), there is at least one tweet that points to a SEA video on YouTube. The SEA reportedly confirmed the hacks in an email to Mashable.

The hackers have also managed to redirect part of Obama's website—OFA.BO/SEA—to the Syrian Electronic Army's website. The extent of the hack is, otherwise, unclear, as the SEA seems to be livetweeting its exploits. We'll keep an eye on the latest and update you as we go. [SEA]
