UPDATE BY FOX NEWS:

The U.S. Army’s official website was hit Monday by hackers claiming to be with a group known as the Syrian Electronic Army, Fox News has learned. The site, which was down Monday afternoon, is a declassified public website. Various screenshots that appeared on Twitter reportedly showed pro-Assad propaganda on the site before it crashed. “Today an element of the Army.mil service provider’s content was compromised,” Army Brig. Gen. Malcolm Frost said in a statement. “After this came to our attention, the Army took appropriate preventive measures to ensure there was no breach of Army data by taking down the website temporarily.”

The hacker group Syrian Electronic Army broke into the US Army’s official website.

The Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) group of hackers who support the Syrian government broke into and defaced the US Army’s official website on Tuesday redirecting it to an image promoting the Syrian Army.

 

The US Army’s website, army.mil is down as of 5:10 p.m. GMT, but the SEA left an archived copy of the page it was replaced with.

The SEA also apparently gained access to the website’s internal databases.
