Members of the Syrian Electronic Army recently took over the Telegraph's Facebook page, along with eight of its Twitter accounts (h/t The Inquirer).

Sophos' Graham Cluley reports that "Syrian Electronic Army Was Here via @Official_SEA12" was posted on the Twitter accounts, and the newspaper's Facebook page stated, "Cameron holds fundraiser for the terrorists in Syria. 'It's for the greater good,' he tells us in a private interview."

"One suspects that it’s not just media organisations who are failing to find the funny side of the Syrian Electronic Army’s hacks, but Twitter also," Cluley writes. "After all, every time a high profile account gets hacked questions are asked as to whether the micro-blogging site is doing enough to secure the accounts of important world-famous brands."

Oteher recent targets of the Syrian Electronic Army include the Financial Times, the Onion, the Guardian, the Associated Press, NPR, and the BBC.
