Reuters blogging platform hacked again
The blogging platform of the Reuters News website was hacked and a false posting saying Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal had died was illegally posted on a Reuters journalist's blog, the company said on Wednesday.
"Reuters did not report the false story and the post was immediately deleted. We are working to address the problem," Barb Burg, director of global communications at Reuters News, said in a statement.
Reuters had no immediate information on who was behind the hacking, the second time this month that the blogging platform of Reuters.com has been compromised. On August 3, Reuters was forced to shut the platform temporarily after the appearance of unauthorised, and false, reports citing military reverses for rebels in Syria.
