(Reuters) - The websites of British and North American media organisations and retailer Wal-Marts Canadian unit were hacked on Thursday in a suspected attack by the Syrian Electronic Army, an amorphous hacker collective that supports Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Among media sites hit were London newspapers the Daily Telegraph, Independent and Evening Standard. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and New York Daily News also said they had fallen victim to the hack. Users attempting to access certain parts of the attacked websites found a message that read Youve been hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) and were then redirected to the groups logo, an image of an eagle bearing the Syrian flag and a message in Arabic. reuters/article/2014/11/27/syria-crisis-hack-idUSL6N0TH41W20141127?type=companyNews&feedType=RSS&feedName=companyNewsNov 27
