Hack attack: US army shuts down its website
June 9 , 2015
The US army had to temporarily shut down its website, army.mil, after it was targeted by hackers.
The army said that an element of the site had been compromised and “appropriate preventive measures” were taken to confront the breach.
The pro-Bashar al-Assad group called Syrian Electronic Army has reportedly claimed responsibility for the hack attack.
The incident comes days after the US accused China-based hackers for an attack that may have affected four million US government employees.
