Hackers force message on websites via U.S. firm
Gigya CEO: hackers rerouted Internet traffic from the company to a computer server
A U.S. firm that helps connect more than 700 companies with customers through social media says a Syrian group hacked the company’s web address to upload a message to other websites.
Gigya CEO Patrick Salyer outlined what happened in a blog published Thursday.
The executive says hackers rerouted Internet traffic from its website to a computer server that generated a message to visitors that their site had been hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army.
Published reports noted the message appeared on websites for several UK newspapers, CNBC and the National Hockey League.
Gigya says no user or company data was compromised in the hack.
The Syrian group aligns itself with Syrian President Bashar Assad. It has previously taken credit for hacking media sites like E! Online and the BBC.
