Barack Obama's Website and Twitter and Facebook and Email Accounts are Compromised

The US President Barack Obama's website and twitter and Facebook and email accounts are hacked, The Syrian Electronic Army climes this attack.

The link shortener used by Organizing for Action, a group that evolved from Obama's re-election campaign, was briefly hacked, an official from the group said. Link shorteners abbreviate Web links so they take up less space in a tweet, which is limited to 140 characters.

Obama's Facebook and Twitter pages carried links that were intended to take readers to a Washington Post story on immigration - but as a result of the hack, redirected readers to a video of the Syrian conflict instead.










Obama rarely writes his own tweets from the @BarackObama Twitter handle, which is run by the Organizing for Action staff. However, when he does, they are signed with his initials.

The Syrian Electronic Army tweeted, "We accessed many Obama campaign emails (sic) accounts to assess his terrorism capabilities. They are quite high." It showed what appeared to be the Google email account of an Organizing for Action staffer.



The SEA(Syrian Electronic Army) has become infamous over the past few months for its high-profile attacks on media organizations it deems to be opponents of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. The altered links in Obama's profile lead to a 24-minute video titled "Syria facing terrorism." Be warned, however: The video contains graphic violence. This SEA website had lunched on May 2011.

The all links had not been fixed at around Oct. 28 1:20 p.m. ET.
