(CNBC) — Newsweek's official Twitter page was hacked on Tuesday. CyberCaliphate, a hacker group that claims affiliation with ISIS, was apparently responsible for the attack.
The group hijacked the page's main images and posted a series of tweets, purportedly containing leaked military information. Certain tweets also threatened first lady Michelle Obama and her family. The FBI is investigating the matter, according to the White House.
The tweets were removed about 20 minutes after being posted, when Twitter's support team regained control of the account at the publication's request, according to Newsweek.
