Last night, Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) hacked into Obama's donation website donate.barackobama.com, which was temporarily redirected to the website of the hacking group (sea.sy/indexs/) with a short message: “Hacked by SEA”.
They have also posted fake tweets and updates from Obama's Facebook Page and Twitter accounts, "All the links that Barack Obama account tweeted it and post it on Facebook was redirected to a video showing the truth about Syria" Hacker told Mashable in an interview.
The attackers also compromised the URL shortening service that the President used to share links through social media (ShortSwitch.com). The compromised links directed users to a video called “Syria Facing Terrorism”, hosted on YouTube, which has since been removed.
At the time of writing, the donate.barackobama.com website no longer redirects visitors to the SEA’s website, but the links posted on his Twitter and Facebook accounts had not been fixed as of publishing time.
According to a screenshot shared by the hacking group, they have also claimed that they have access Obama Campaign email accounts.
Zone-H mirrors of hack are also available for readers:
New York Times web page multiple times, Twitter, CNN, the Huffington Post and Global Post and many more targets.
The SEA website launched in May 2011 stating the group's mission: to attack the enemies of the Syrian government, mainly those who fabricated stories about the Syrian civil war.
