‘Anonymous’ Hacks Syrian Ministry of Defense Website


Hacker group Anonymous took over the website of the Syrian Ministry of Defense website (which is still down as of this posting), replacing text on its front page with a message:

“To the Syrian people: The world stands with you against the brutal regime of Bashar Al-Assad. Know that time and history are on your side – tyrants use violence because they have nothing else, and the mor violent they are, the more fragile they become. We salute your determination to be non-violent in the face fo the regime's brutality, and admire your willingness to purse justice, not mere revene. All tyrants will fall, and thanks to your bravery Bashar Al-Assad is next. … To the Syrian military: You are responsible for protecting the Syrian people, and anyone who orders you to kill women, children, and the elderly deserves to be tried for treason. No outside enemy could do as much damage to Syria as Bashar Al-Assad has done. Defend your country — rise up against the regime!”
