Syria - Pro-Assad Hackers Invading Western Media

The Epoch, a pro-Western Chinese news service operating from a U.S. server, has the news of a so-called "Syrian Electronic Army" that invaded Twitter sites of some Western media and organizations. The Syrian hacker troop declares it acts in favor of Syria's president Bashir al-Assad. Yesterday, May 17, The Financial Times FT, London, became their last target when Syrian hackers left a remark on FT web locations saying the "Syrian Electronic Army Was Here". Earlier attacks were directed against the British daily The Guardian on April 24 this year and a BBC weather report where hackers announced some kind of "catastrophe" to hit the people of Israel. Another site attacked was that of Human Rights Watch organization. The French news broadcast of France 24 suffered as well from being invaded by the Syrian Electronic Army.

U.S. concerns about public security in Libya can be understood in the frame of that notorious September 2012 incident when America's ambassador to Libya was killed in a willful attack launched against the U.S. consulate in Benghazi:
