A Syrian Group Just Hacked The U.S. Army Website And Left This Mysterious Message
The group has breached other military and media websites in the past.
A group affiliated with the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad took responsibility Monday for hacking the U.S. Army’s public website and forcing it offline.
The Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) sent multiple tweets out Monday with screenshots from images it posted to the Army.mil website. (Scroll down to see one of them.)
One popup message on Army.mil read: “Your commanders admit they are training the people they have sent you to die fighting.”
The message references a training program, which Western Journalism reported about last week, for moderate fighters who pledge to back ISIS, many of whom also oppose the Assad regime. The United States military has avoided any direct confrontation with the dictator in the 10 months since American airstrikes began against ISIS targets in Syria. More
