eBay, PayPal hacked
« on: Monday, 03 February, 2014 @ 08:04:11 »
A pro-hacker group, aligned with president Bashar al-Assad, very well known as Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) has again gained the media attention by adding the popular sites, i.e. eBay UK and PayPal UK to its victim list.

After targeting websites of various media agencies, government organizations and big enterprises, including the latest defaced CNN and Microsoft, today they targeted and defaced the official websites of UK’s Ebay ( and PayPal (

The group also left a deface page along with a message on the hacked PayPal UK site: “Hacked by Syrian Electronic Army! F**k the United States Government.”

It is clear that the attack on PayPal could put millions of peoples' bank information at risk, but the group said that the attack is not to target account information of people instead was ‘Purely a Hacktivist Operation’.
