Syria is all over the news right now, with a chemical attack happening a few days ago and now it looks like the US is set to intervene in the next 72 hours. But now the Syrian Electronic Army has hit The New York Times, with a Domain Name System (DNS) attack that took down its website.

The Times had to resort to tweeting out direct IP links to its articles, all while Twitter itself is now possibly vulnerable. Hackers have reportedly managed to modify some of the registration data, including the contact e-mail address, suggesting an attack on Twitter could happen any moment.
