Syrian electronic army claims to own Facebook

Written by Nick Farrell



Weapons of Mass Distraction

Hacker followers of Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad claimed to have taken control of Facebook’s online address in what it joked was a belated birthday greeting.

The Syrian Electronic Army said “"Happy Birthday Mark," SEA in a message fired off from its Twitter account. "Facebook owned by #SEA." The comment had Facebook puzzled as no traffic to the website was hijacked, and that no users of the social network were affected.

The company's famed co-founder, Mark Zuckerberg, embraces the creative side of hacker culture when it comes to software innovation. SEA claimed to have taken control of Facebook's online domain but it might have just had some of the records of registrar MarkMonitor. It claimed that it changed the name servers, but it was taking too much time," SEA said in a follow-up tweet.

Facebook marked its 10th anniversary on Tuesday, and Zuckerberg referred to the company's evolution as an "amazing journey" in a post on his profile page at the leading social network.
