In yet another Twitter hacking of a news outlet, though this time it is a parody news outlet, The Onion has been the latest victim of hackers.
Following the exact same pattern as The Associated Press, E! Online and other news-outlets, the Syrian Electronic Army has claimed responsibility what was a string of anti-Israel tweets from the Onion’s account. as we mentioned before they are not the first, ’60 Minutes,’ ’48 Hours’ and other high-profile Twitter accounts have been hacked, all by the same group. Or at least the same group is claiming responsibility. Earlier today The Onion’s Twitter account filled with pro-Syria and anti-Israel Tweets.
“Israel denies forging new alliance with Al Qaeda: ‘We were friends all along, so it can’t be new’ – IDF Spokesperson,” stated one Tweet. “UN’s [Secretary General] Ban Ki Moon condemns Syria for being struck by Israel: ‘It was in the way of Jewish missiles.'” followed shortly after.
When the same group took over the APs Twitter account, it cost $130 billion on the stock market. All before the AP could state that the claim (which was the White House was attacked and the president was injured) was false.
