The official website of one of the biggest Arabic-language news network "Al Jazeera" got hacked just now by Pro-Assad hackers called "Al-Rashedon". If your miss the deface page, please have a look to mirror of it Here.

Hacking group "Al-Rashedon" can be the part of "Syrain Electronic Army", But yet Syrian Hackers didn't claim anything about this hack on their facebook page or website. The Arabic used (and the language mistakes) indicates that the hackers may be people living abroad and not native Syrians, may be these hackers belongs to Iraq.
