Harvard website brought down

Yesterday we told you about the Syrian Ministry of Defense website had been hacked by Anonymous. Turns out the Syrians, or Syrian sympathizers, were busy with their own zeros and ones attack, and it was right here on American soil. Harvard University's site hacked by pro-Syrian group yesterday morning by a group calling itself the Syrian Electronic Army. The group posted a picture of Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad and criticized U.S. opposition to the Assad regime.

The BBC goes on to report the group,

"accused the United States of supporting a "policy of killing" in Syria. In fragmented English, it also carried a threat of violent attack.
'Do you support the war on Syria? If you are you, as well as the following Syria's population of 23 million people. This means 23 million mobile bomb. Imagine what we could do.'"

It was fixed after a couple hours.
