BREAKING NEWS: The Syrian Electronic Army, a hacker group supportive of Syrian President Bashar Assad, claimed Tuesday it managed to hack Facebook.com, just in time for the social network’s tenth anniversary. The hackers first claimed to subvert Facebook.com in a tweet published at approximately 6:30 EST. A cursory search of the WHOIS domain registrar indicated that the email address tied to Facebook had indeed been changed to a Syrian gmail account. The SEA claimed it was able to change Facebook’s servers but the process had to be abandoned because it was “taking too much time.” Half an hour after the SEA tweet, Facebook and MarkMonitor, a domain management firm, said they had rectified the error, preventing any serious impact. In August 2013, amid US consideration that it would join the ongoing Syrian civil war and attempt to remove Assad from power, the SEA hacked The Huffington Post, The New York Times, and other news entities the hackers believed to be hostile towards Assad.
