An Algerian hacker has hijacked the official Facebook account of Syriatel, a major Syrian telecoms company owned by a cousin of President Bashar al-Assad.
According to HackRead, the hacker uses the online moniker Virus DX.

He has started publishing content on the compromised timeline, including anti-Syrian government videos and photos. He has also posted a video which shows that he has access to the account of Syriatel.

In addition, the hacker has changed the account’s cover and profile photos.

Currently, the posts made by Virus DX are still present on Syriatel’s Facebook account.
