Washington Post Says Its Website Was Hacked

The Washington Post said its website was hacked Thursday by a group known for its support of the Syrian government. 

“The Washington Post Web site was hacked today, with readers on certain stories being redirected to the site of the Syrian Electronic Army,” an editor’s note on the Post’s website read. “The group is a hacker collective that supports Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.”

The Post wrote that it is working to resolve the issue.
