They have added a post with title  “Hacked By Syrian Electronic Army.” The post has been removed ,at the time of writing. But you can see the post made by the hackers in Google cache: "http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:https://insights.mastercard.com/2013/01/05/hacked-by-syrian-electronic-army-3/"


The google Evidence shows that the cache recorded on Jan 6 and post has been added on 5th Jan.

It appears that the Site uses the outdated Worpress version. If you check the source code of the blog, you can identify the blog uses the old version 3.3.2 of Wordpress.
