Syrian hackers pop Twitter Hootsuite dashboard

Hacker outfit the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) hours ago cracked Israel's Defence Force (IDF) Twitter account where it posted a fake warning of a possible nuclear leak due to rocket strikes.

The group posted under the IDF (@) account of a "possible nuclear leak in the region after two rockets hit [the] Dimona nuclear facility" which triggered a brief panic among some of the account's 215,000 followers.

 

The SEA a screenshot showing it gained access to the IDF's Hootsuite dashboard, a Twitter client that manages public tweets and private direct messages.

Israel's defence force later for the erroneous and alarmist tweet advising users it was compromised and would "combat terror on all fronts including the cyber dimension".

With all the rockets being fired into southern Israel, that would cause some panic. Israel is surrounded by enemies all of whom will not be satisfied until Israel is wiped off the map.
