UK Based Ebay & Paypal Websites are Compromised

Today UK Based Ebay & Paypal Websites are compromised by Hacking group Syrian Electronic Army. SEA managed to modify the DNS records of ebay.co.uk and paypal.co.uk and left them defaced.

The SEA provided its evidence on Twitter, with an example of what appeared to be PayPal.co.uk's website with a fresh deface, and a second follow-up tweet labeled "Internal Paypal communications confirming penetration."



The Twitter account used by the Syrian Electronic Army for the announcement has since been suspended.

PayPal confirmed the security breach, "PayPal's Sr. Director of Global Initiatives notes that the problem was limited to marketing pages in the UK, France, and India redirecting, that it has been resolved, and no user data was compromised."

PayPal did not provide an explanation regarding the display of its paypal.co.uk URL in the evidence of the hack as provided by the Syrian Electronic Army.

I have attached the compromised websites screenshots, please have a check.
