18-Year-Old Syrian Hacker Says It Took 3 People Just Hours To Compromise New York Times, Twitter

On Tuesday, The New York Times, Twitter, and the Huffington Post U.K. suffered website difficulties after apparently coming under attack from the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA).
The pro-Assad SEA appears to have been able to attack the domain name registrar for the websites, changing ownership of the sites to "SEA." In the case of The New York Times, the attack appeared to take the website down for a number of hours.
During the attack, Business Insider reached out to a hacker affiliated with the SEA who calls himself "Th3 Pr0." While Th3 Pr0 is usually very prompt in his responses, he took several hours to respond. He apologized for the delay, explaining that he was "busy."
Asked if SEA were involved in the attack and why Twitter — a technology company as opposed to SEA's standard media company targets — was attacked, he responded:
Yes we are, we attacked Twitter because the suspensions of our accounts for 15 times and we did warned them, NYtimes was hacked as a part of our campaign against the media who keep publishing false/fabricated news about Syria
