Silicon Republic reports that LinkedIn blog was reportedly being hacked by a group calling itself as the Syrian Electronic Army. Users clicking on LinkedIn’s blog at the bottom of their LinkedIn page will find them redirected to a web page supportive of President Bashar al-Assad and critical of the Syrian National Council. At the time of writing and after clicking on the link again a “Service Unavailable” page replaced the message from the Syrian Electronic Army. “We are a group of Syrian youth who wanted to show the truth and therefore we used this website which was used to spread lies about Syria,” they wrote. “We are the Syrian Electronic Army and we come in peakoe (sic) for those who want peace for Syria,” the message read.
