US Centcom Twitter account hacked by pro-IS group

The Twitter and YouTube accounts of the US military command were suspended for a few hours after being hacked by a group claiming to back Islamic State.
 
One message on Centcom's Twitter feed said: "American soldiers, we are coming, watch your back."
 
It was signed by Isis, another name for the Islamic State. Some internal military documents also appeared on the Centcom Twitter feed.
 
Centcom said it was "cyber-vandalism" and not a serious data breach.
 
In a statement, it said there was no operational impact and no classified information was posted.
 
"We are viewing this purely as a case of cyber-vandalism," it said. Later on Monday, its Twitter feed became visible again, although not active.
 
Embarrassingly, the hack happened as President Barack Obama was giving a speech on cyber-security.
 
Reflecting on major breaches like a recent hack of Sony Pictures, Mr Obama said in his speech the US had been reminded of "enormous vulnerabilities for us as a nation and for our economy".
