Market Villains - Barack ObamaThe 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.
