The Syrian Electronic Army has breached the official blog of Channel 4, the popular British public-service television broadcaster.

The hackers have published a screenshot to demonstrate that they’ve gained administrator access to Channel 4’s WordPress blog dashboard. In addition, they’ve defaced the Channel 4 blog homepage.

In response to the attack, Channel 4 has shut down its blog.

“#SEA hacks Channel 4 blog, but they hired an admin to stay up all night to try and stop us,” the Syrian Electronic Army explained on Twitter.
