Anonymous hacks Syrian Electronic Army: Operation Syria engaged

September 2, 2013

Anonymous hacks the pro-Assad hacker group known as the Syrian Electronic Army, compromising servers and obtaining members’ names along with user IDs and passwords, as part of Operation Syria (#OpSyria).

According to a report issued Sept. 2 by The Register, an “entity or person associated with Anonymous” confirmed the successful attack against the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA). The report claims Anonymous “d0xed – that is, de-anonymised – ‘five core members’ of the SEA.”

The SEA emerged during the rise of anti-regime protests in Syria in the spring of 2011, and has been hacking social media accounts associated with major news organizations and human rights organizations ever since.


Anonymous issued a press release announcing Operation Syria (#OpSyria) earlier this week. The following is an excerpt from that announcement:


Silence is a war crime.

More than 100,000 people have been killed in the conflict in Syria.

For far too long, we have witnessed the barbaric, unjust and brutal treatment of the Syrian people.

Dictator Assad and elements within the Syrian Opposition, you now have the undivided attention of Anonymous.

To the people of Syria, know that Anonymous stands with you in this war against terror.

We vow to do everything we can to hinder war crimes played against you. We will raise awareness in every manner we can. We will assist you in putting an end to this carnage.

We are Anonymous.

We are Legion.

We do not Forgive.

We do not Forget.

Dictator Assad, oppressors of the Syrian people, Expect US!
