Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) starts leaking the data it has collected over previous years from the Saudi Arabia and Turkish Government and Military, on their website

The pro Bashar Al-Assad regime hacking group, Syrian Electronic Army popularly called SEA, has been dumping the stolen data from the sites that it had hacked in previous years.

SEA claimed that it has hacked scores of classified e-mail accounts, including the accounts of the Turkish Presidency, Foreign Ministry, Defense Ministry, Air Forces and the Saudi Arabia Government and Military documents.

Syrian Electronic Army hacked the Turkish Ministry of Interior, Database back in June 2013 and hit the Saudi Arabian Government websites last year in January.

However the Group has started leaking these documents, most of which contains highly classified and sensitive data from the two countries and their relations with the West, particularly United States.

It has released a total of a total of 967 e-mail accounts in 14 categories on the internet, unveiling scores of correspondence made between March 2009 and November 2012.  The list of e-mails hacked by the group includes a number of Turkish ministers, diplomats and civil servants, as well as accounts from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the Arab League.

Techworm asked SEA about the leaks and they stated that these come from the old hacks starting from 2009 to 2014.  They also said that more leaks were coming and the same will be published on their website.

When we asked them why they didnt publish all at one go, they stated that the work of uploading the leaks is going on and the same may be live any moment.

Techworm asked SEA for the reason behind making the stolen data public.  The SEA stated that they want to expose the Western world and media in particular for their links to the bloody civil going on in Syria.

Here is a snippet of the convo we had with them

For example, in the Saudi Arabia files, we will see deals between ministry of defense and other military companies to buy mortar shells.

Which the Saudi army doesn’t need, and that mortar shells were sent to the terrorists to hit Damascus like what happened few days ago.

SEA also said that it still has backdoors present in few of the hacked servers form the Government of Turkey/Saudi Arabia, but did not mentioned which servers in particular.

The last high profile hack attack undertaken by SEA was in January 2015 when the group hacked into the French daily, Le Monde’s Twitter account.
