Reports: Syrian Electronic Army Claims It Hacked Obama Campaign Electronic Platforms -- By Adam Kredo, The Washington Free Beacon

Protester holds up sign that reads "The electronic Syrian army" / APThe Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) claims to have hacked President Barack Obama’s electronic platforms, including the website barackobama.com, the president’s official Twitter feed, and his campaign’s official email account.

A Twitter account affiliated with the SEA published on Monday screenshots purporting to show the Obama campaign’s official emails.

It also posted a shot that appears to show the SEA gaining backend access to www.barackobama.com, the campaign’s official website.

“We accessed many Obama campaign emails accounts to assess his terrorism capabilities,” the SEA tweeted Monday afternoon with a link to a screenshot purported showing the campaign’s emails. “They are quite high.”

Hacker websites reported that the SEA had compromised the donation section of the Obama campaign’s website and forced it to redirect users to a SEA site that read, “Hacked by the SEA,” according to Hacker News.

The SEA is a nebulous hacking collective loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. It has hacked several prominent websites and Twitter accounts, including those affiliated with the satirical Onion news organization as well as the government of Israel.
