Anonymous Hacks Again. Target: Syrian President Bashar Assad

Anonymous does it again. Late on Sunday night, Anonymous gained access to 78 different e-mail accounts at the Syrian Ministry of Presidential Affairs, including that of the Minister of Presidential Affairs, Mansour Fadlallah Azzam, and Assad’s media adviser, Bouthaina Shaaban.

What is really sad, folks, is that the password was “12345.”


One hacked email I did manage to find was an email sent prior to Assad’s interview with Barbara Walters. I uploaded it here – for keepsake purposes, of course. Assad discusses what the current scuttlebutt is in American over Syria in preparation for his upcoming interview.

Such as:

The Violence:
* The idea of violence has been one of the major subjects brought up in every article. They use the phrases “the Syrian government is killing its own people”, “Tanks have been used in many cities”, “airplanes have been used to suppress the peaceful demonstrations” and “Security forces are criminals and bloody”.

Assad even loosely comments about the Occupy Wall Street Movement:

· It is hugely important and worth mentioning that “mistakes” have been done in the beginning of the crises because we did not have a well-organized “police force”. American Psyche can be easily manipulated when they hear that there are “mistakes” done and now we are “fixing it”. Its worth mentioning also what is happening now in Wall Street and the way the demonstrations are been suppressed by police men, police dogs and beatings.

And let’s not forget torture:

Torture Policy:
“Syria doesn’t have a policy to torture people” unlike the USA, where there are courses and schools that specializes in teaching police men and officers how to torture criminals and “outlaws”. For instace, “the electric chair and killing through injecting an overdose amount of medicine”…etc. *We can use Abu Ghraib in Iraq as an example.

The ever-important social media sites:

Facebook and You tube:
This is very important to the American mindset. The fact that Facebook and youtube are open now-especially during the crises- is important.

And this is actually one of my favorites:

The Comments:
· The comments that follow any article in the American Media are a very important tool to use in the interview. The Americans now believe that their government has failed two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. They are asking their government to stop interfering in other countries businesses and sovereignty and to start taking care of the American
internal issues.

In all honesty, Assad appears to see more truths about the United States than many of our own elected officials do.

And by the way… please, do not use “12345” as your password. Do not use “password123”. Do not use your name and your birthdate. Do not use your kids or grandkids names or birthdates. And do not use your pet’s names. Jump into the current times… use Keypass (or similar) to generate and store your passwords.


  1. Sheesh. They really need some IT policies over there. I suggest changing the passwords to 321drowssap.
    Funny what this article points out. Bashir’s observations are correct, but he doesn’t mention the freedoms that let the US population (and him) know about this stuff…

  2. Wow this is just so shocking. People in the US rarely take time to pay attention to what goes on in other places. Thanks for sharing this.

  3. I have to hand it to Anonymous. For the most part they seem to pick on very “worthy” victims. I’d really expected that by now some rogue, irresponsible Anonymous members would have done some truly malicious, destructive things, and ruined any credibility the group might have. They’ve shown a lot more discipline than I expected.

    • Someone did try… that posting I did earlier in January about hacking Facebook. That ended up NOT being Anonymous – which I did not think it was from the beginning. But that got stopped. You’d have to be a pretty big fool to mess around with Anonymous… they’ll find ya.

      And I agree… they do pick worthy targets.

Go ahead... I can hear your thoughts. Please share with the rest!
