Army’s public website hacked by unknown intruders

Defense officials confirm the official public Army website has been hacked by unknown intruders demanding the U.S. stop training rebel fighters inside Syria.

Unlike the massive hack into Office of Personnel Management records, the officials stress the website contains no official classified information or private personal data of any Army personnel, military or civilian.

The messages reportedly proclaimed “YOU’VE BEEN HACKED” and added “YOUR COMMANDERS ADMIT THEY ARE TRAINING THE PEOPLE THEY HAVE SENT YOU TO DIE FIGHTING.”

It’s not clear yet whether the Army or the hackers shut down the website.

The officials say the website is for general public access with general information about the Army, press releases and Army generated news stories.
