We have already contacted SEA for feedback over the hack, and will update the Article as soon as we get any response from them.
update : our query to SEA has drawn the below mentioned response from SEA on Twitter
Statement: The hosting company that hosts #SEA websites, including (http://t.co/DrZPClwYX9) was attacked… (sea.sy) was not affected. (1/3)
— SyrianElectronicArmy (@Official_SEA16) January 14, 2014Since the #SEA servers is managed by the hosting company, they down the servers quickly to make sure that will not happen again. (2/3)
— SyrianElectronicArmy (@Official_SEA16) January 14, 2014Such attacks will not affect the #SEA, we will continue our hacks and operations. (3/3)
— SyrianElectronicArmy (@Official_SEA16) January 14, 2014The reply which is in three parts agrees that a website which a part of SEA leaks.sea.sy was compromised but the sea.sy has not been affected. It has also warned that its attacks will continue as before. In further response it has quoted that it will change its hosting company soon as the present one does not look secure enough!
