Good morning: another Monday, another hacking story to start your week.
Forbes.com was hacked on Friday by the Syrian Electronic Army, who released the user data of over one million users of the site. The hacker group, who have previously attacked big name companies like AP and The Washington Post, took screenshots of their infiltration of Forbes (which is evidently powered by Wordpress.) The company has since regained control of the site, and have requested users to change their passwords, and to watch out for potential phishing attacks. In addition to the site's attack, the group also took control of the Twitter accounts @ForbesTech, @TheAlexKnapp and @Samsharf.
The SEA told the International Business Times that they targeted Forbes because the "hate for Syria is very clear and flagrant in their articles."
