Submission + - FBI Cyber Division Adds Syrian Electronic Army To Wanted List (ibtimes.com)

coolnumbr12 writes: The U.S. government has had enough of the Syrian Electronic Army’s hacks of Western media and government outlets. A week after the SEA shut down the New York Times, the FBI Cyber Division unit has officially added the pro-Assad hacker collective to its wanted list.

The FBI issued an advisory that included information about the SEA, its capabilities, and some of its more heinous attacks. The advisory also warns networks to be on the lookout for attacks, and that anyone found to be aiding the SEA will be seen as terrorists actively aiding attacks against the U.S. websites.
