Today’s case: The Washington Post, which found itself inadvertently sending readers to the website of the Syrian Electronic Army.
Post managing editor Emilio Garcia-Ruiz issued a statement saying the paper had been hit by a massive email phishing attack a few days ago. He added:
The attack resulted in one staff writer’s personal account being used to send out a Syrian Electronic Army message. This morning, some articles on our website were redirected to the Syrian Electronic Army’s site for a period of about 30 minutes.
