Skype’s Twitter, Facebook, and blog hacked by Syrian Electronic Army demanding an end to spying
A Skype spokesperson responded to TNW with a statement: “We recently became aware of a targeted cyber attack that led to access to Skype’s social media properties, but these credentials were quickly reset. No user information was compromised.”
The Skype team has also taken to Twitter to acknowledge the hack and reassure users.
The Syrian Electronic Army has certainly been busy in the past year. The group backs Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and has been targeting news publications, computers, and various other companies. In 2013, it claimed responsibility for the hack of the New York Times, the Financial Times, the BBC Weather’s Twitter account, and even went after Twitter.
