Guardian Claims Syrian Group Hacked Twitter Account

Following the hacking of several of the Guardian UK's Twitter accounts, the Syrian Electronic Army claimed responsibility and spokespersons for the tabloid now say the offending IP address was traced back to Syria. The Syrian Electronic Army supports the Syrian President's regime which is currently fighting an uprising of the populace. Recently, news reports suggest that the regime has used chemical weapons against its own people.

The Associated Press' Twitter account was hacked last week. A tweet claiming that the White House had been bombed and the President harmed in the attack was issued, sending the stock market into a brief freefall. The Syrian Electronic Army claimed responsibility for this as well but no one has confirmed it.
