Syrian Offices Hacked by Anonymous

Syrian offices have been attacked by Anonymous. Anonymous leaked hundreds of emails on Monday.

Anonymous hacked Syrian Ministry of Presidential Affairs' mail server. 78 email inboxes were accessed and leaked. A quite easy password used by some staff was "12345" and could have been guessed by anyone.

Some of the information in the email accounts included an interview with Barbara Walters and the Syrian President which took place on December 2011. The email read “We don’t kill our people,” Assad told ABC “No government in the world kills its people, unless it’s led by a crazy person.”

Other news involving the President of Syrian involves the United Nations and the Syrian President. The President of Syrian, Bashar al-Assad, has been requested by world leaders to step down this week. So far the President of Syrian hasn't agreed.

If the passwords of employees which work for the Syrian government are "12345", is it even a legit government? First they deny killing their own people, now they can't even think-up good passwords. I think it's time for a change in leadership in Syria.
