Reuters’ blogging platform was hacked last Friday, and a false story about an alleged interview with a Syrian rebel leader was posted. On Sunday, Reuters suffered a second security breach in which hackers gained control of one of its Twitter accounts, the publication confirmed. The ReutersTech account was hijacked and renamed to ReutersME (ME stands for Middle East). Reuters confirmed the breach in a tweet on its main Twitter account.
