Newsweek's Twitter account
Washington - KUNA

The weekly magazine Newsweek Twitter account was hacked by a group calling itself the "Cyber Caliphate" on Tuesday.
The group claimed to be affiliated with the Islamic State (ISIL) and has previously hacked the Twitter account of the US Central Command, Centcom, as well as the official Twitter account of Taylor Swift.
The Newsweek account was hacked for 14 minutes until 10:59 a.m. (local time), when Twitter's support team regained control of the account at the publication's request.
"We can confirm that Newsweek's Twitter account was hacked this morning, and have since regained control of the account," Newsweek managing editor Kira Bindrim said in a statement.
"We apologize to our readers for anything offensive that might have been sent from our account during that period, and are working to strengthen our newsroom security measures going forward." Meanwhile, White House Spokesperson Josh earnest said "well, I don't have any response made, or I don't have any response to the claims that are made by these hackers.
"I can tell you that we've seen a number of high profile incidents in recent months where media organizations and other important institutions have been compromised in some way, or at least their computer systems have been compromised in some way," Earnest said.
"This is particular intrusion is one that is already being investigated by the FBI, so I'd refer you to them for specific questions on that matter," Earnest added.
But I can tell you as a general matter, it is a good reminder of how important it is for Congress to act on the cyber security legislation that the president put forward just last month, that there are some common-sense things that we can do to better protect the American people and their data and better respond to these incidents when they occur," Earnest noted.
