The SEA (Syrian Electronic Army), has been busy as of late; engaging in several recent attacks, including one domain attack last week against PayPal, and others last year that targeted the AFP’s Twitter account and three CBS News accounts, all in support of Syria’s President Assad. In May, the group hacked into the Associated Press's Twitter account and falsely reported that President Barack Obama had been injured after two blasts at the White House.




Last month, the group was assumed to be behind an attack against Microsoft in an incident where attackers breached the email accounts of a “select number” of employees, and obtained access to documents associated with law enforcement inquiries.

Last night on Twitter, the SEA wished Mark Zuckerberg a "happy birthday", adding;
"Happy Birthday Mark! Facebook.com owned by #SEA.Below is the Domain Information taken as of last night at 6:35 pm EST.

The domain information was fixed, before any real damage was done. According to MarkMonitor and Facebook.
