“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.
