Reuters hacked for third time

  • News agency Reuters has been hacked for the third time in the space of a month, with an article falsely alleging that Saudi Arabia's foreign minister had died.

    Hackers first hit the agency's blogging section at the start of August with claims that the Syrian rebel army was to retreat.

    Two days later, the agency's technology news Twitter feed was taken over with pro-Syrian government messages posted.

    It is unclear who is behind the hack.
