A part of our website run by a third-party was compromised earlier today. We’ve removed the component. No Telegraph user data was affected. — The Telegraph (@Telegraph) November 27, 2014
UPDATE: The Independent has just reported that the syrian hackers hijacked the hacked sites’ DNS (Domain Name System) through Gigya comment platform (the hacked sites’ comment system), and used it to steal data including texts and images. But fortunately, no data was compromised and the issues are fixed.
