The usually boring home page of the Harvard University website was livened up on Monday morning by a hacking group calling itself the Syrian Electronic Army, a group purporting to support President Bashar al-Assad (title link). Would a "sophisticated" hacker group really be gullible enough to believe all the propaganda being dished out by the murderous Syrian regime? And a message containing terror threats against the USA seems more likely to be the work of a crank than a sane member of the ruling elite. Perhaps a student. Was it rag day in Harvard? Jolly japes to annoy the professors?
