Activists deface Syrian official websites

Hackers launch attack on government sites in bid to "show solidarity" with victims of crackdown.

    Online activists have launched another attack on Syrian government websites, replacing the content with parodies of President Bashar al-Assad.

    They say it is an attempt to show solidarity with the people of Syria, and the victims of a crackdown on anti-government protests there.
