WaPo Site Hacked

August 15, 2013

The Washington Post website was apparently hacked by a hacker collective, Syrian Electronic Army, believed to support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Certain stories on the site redirect readers to the collective’s website. An editor’s note on the Post’s website said the paper is “working to resolve the issue.” The hacking comes a day after the New York Times website went down because of an “internal issue.” (WCP)
