Its back up now, but the New York Times website was unavailable for several hours Tuesday after an apparent hack attack. Several people reported being redirected to a Syrian web domain when they tried to access the paper's website.
Marc Frons, chief information officer for The New York Times Company told the paper that the attack was carried out by a group known as "the Syrian Electronic Army, or someone trying very hard to be them." The Syrian Electronic Army is a group of hackers who support President Bashar al-Assad of Syria. The group attacked the company’s domain name registrar, Melbourne IT.
The S.E.A. also hacked the administrative contact information for Twitter’s domain name registry records and then tweeted about it. Twitter reports that the attack affected one image server and that the problem has been corrected.
On August 15, the group attacked The Washington Post’s Web site through a third-party service provided by a company called Outbrain. The S.E.A. also tried to hack CNN and succeeded in disrupting The Financial Times in May.
The NY Times reports that this is the same group that had attacked Twitter accounts for dozens of outlets including The Associated Press. Those attacks caused the stock market to plunge after the group planted false tales of explosions at the White House.
EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Southwestern Illinois officials say hackers may have accessed thousands of credit card n umbers used by people who bought tickets to Edwardsville's Wildey Theatre.
Investigators say as many as 6,000 credit cards were compromised.
Police Chief Jay Keeven says investigators still aren't sure of the full scope of the breach, but say there's no evidence that credit card numbers used to pay city utility bills, court fines or other fees were also accessed.
The historic theater that opened in 1909 is owned by the city.
Still, Keeven said investigators "strongly suggest" people who've conducted business with Edwardsville closely monitor their credit card statements.
