The Federal Bureau of Investigation has added the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA), an active group of hackers sympathetic to the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad, to its list of wanted criminals.

Though working largely on the periphery for the last few years, the SEA has recently raised its profile considerably after temporarily disabling major media outlets.

Just one week after the SEA disabled The New York Times’ website for a considerable number of hours on August 27, the FBI issued an advisory warning Americans about the SEA and its capabilities. The statement also reported that any US citizen found to be aiding the hackers will be investigated as a terrorist who is actively aiding attacks against US companies.
