The deface message left by Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) was expressed in following words:

  • Dear US Marines, This is a message written by your brothers in the Syrian Army, who have been fighting Al Qaeda for the last 3 years. We understand your patriotism and love for your country so please understand our love for ours. Obama is a traitor who wants to put your lives in danger to rescue Al Qaeda insurgents. Marines, please take a look at what your comrades think about Obama’s alliance with Al Qaeda against Syria.
  • Your officer in charge probably has no qualms about sending you to die against soldiers just like you, fighting a vile common enemy. The Syrian army should be your ally not your enemy. Refuse your orders and concentrate on the real reason every soldier joins their military, to defend their homeland. You’re more than welcome to fight alongside our army rather than against it.
  • Your brothers, the Syrian army soldiers. A message delivered by the SEA

Just two days ago I had shared an in depth analysis of what SEA can or will do in case of a war or peace time against the US, today’s attack on U.S Marine Corps website proves that SEA has all the power to conduct massive cyber attack on U.S or in other words Cyber Armageddon.

At the time of publishing this article, the website of Marine Corps recruitment was restored and working online.
