The Financial Times website and its Twitter accounts were this afternoon hijacked by pro-government hackers from the “Syrian Electronic Army”.
The posh broadsheet’s Tech Blog – at http://blogs.FT.com/beyond-brics – was compromised to run stories headlined “Syrian Electronic Army Was Here” and “Hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army”.
Meanwhile, the Technology News (@FTtechnews), FT Media and FT Markets Twitter feeds were seized by miscreants, who posted web links to disturbing YouTube videos of jihadis executing men by firing squad.
The blog has been cleaned up, but the Twitter accounts remain compromised.
