Early today, the official website of the US Army (www.army.mil) was defaced by attackers claiming to be with the Syrian Electronic Army. In addition to a message on the page claiming attribution, the attackers also included a pop-up message to anyone visiting: "Your commanders admit they are training the people they have sent you to die fighting."

Based on screenshots published in the Syrian Electronic Army's Twitter account, it appears the attack gained access to the webpage through the Limelight Networks content delivery network. A screenshot shows a Limelight control panel for the account belonging to the US Army Office of Public Affairs.

Hack appeared to exploit Army's commercial content delivery network provider.

I hope the private sector is doing much better work then the government. If not we may be in for a big shock soon as the cyber attacks escalate.

Wow talk about reaching for a story. They hacked the official public face of the army which in absolutely no way would reflect any secure facilitie. Now I am sure secure facilities can be hacked these clowns didn't do it .

We'll never be told if anyone has or does get into what is considered the more secure areas.

You do know how to use the reply button to another member don't you?


What you essentially said is what I said in my original post. No they are not completely secure but the clowns that did this hack couldn't do it or they would have .

Well if they're trying to ruin something why waste time on AKO? I mean...it's a little better than MOL, but still.
