Syrians hijack TIME’s Person of the Year poll

The Syrian Electronic Army has been making the biggest splash of any of the organized hacking groups, this time going after the oft-hacked TIME Person of the Year award.

Time magazine’s Twitter account and Person of the Year poll were both hacked today by the Syrian Electronic Army, Techworm reported.

According to the security news site, on Friday the SEA broke into the company’s Twitter account and wrote, “’Syrian Electronic Army’ was here via @Official_SEA16.. Next time write a better word about the Syrian president #SEA.”
