Biggest Hacks: President Barack Obama’s Twitter Account
The SEA also claimed responsibility for hacks involving President Obama’s Twitter and Facebook accounts in October.
The President’s personal information was not compromised in the attack, but hackers managed to affect the link-shortening service used by the President’s social media account. Hackers redirected links from President Obama’s accounts to videos about the Syrian Electronic Army.
The group took credit for the attacks on Twitter, saying, “Obama doesn’t have any ethical issues with spying on the world, so we took it upon ourselves to return the favor.”
