Hackers take over Syria government websites | Haaretz

Opposition group ‘Anonymous’, replaces homepages with interactive maps of Syria showing data on people killed in the government’s crackdown since mid-March.

Some Syrian government websites were hacked on Monday by the opposition group ‘Anonymous’, who replaced the homepages with interactive maps of Syria showing data on the people killed in the government’s crackdown since mid-March.

The sites, all domain names that end with “gov.sy”, were based in the cities of Homs, Aleppo, Latakia, Damascus, Tartous, Deir Ezzor and Palmyra.

The hacked versions of the webpages included a link to a site advising activists on how to maintain anonymity on the internet and prevent government tracking.
