Adding to a spate of recent infiltrations of major media outlets, the Syrian Electronic Army appears to have compromised the Twitter account for the British Sky Broadcasting Group, spreading fears that the broadcaster's apps had been compromised in a hack. Sky denies that its Android apps — including Sky Go, Sky+, Sky Wi-Fi, and Sky News — have been compromised, but the apps in question are not currently available on the Google Play market.
According a source familiar with the matter, The Verge has learned that the Sky help team's Twitter account had been compromised, and that tweets asking customers to uninstall their apps were made by unauthorized actors. The broadcaster is said to be currently investigating the matter
