The New York Times main website remained down Wednesday and a hacker group calling itself the "Syrian Electronic Army" is claiming responsibility.

The Los Angeles Times reports that hackers gained access to a user name and password of a New York Times sales partner. Now, when trying to access the website, users get a message saying it cannot be found.

The Times sent out a tweet saying it is able to send out digital reports. Its app is not affected and is still working.

This is the second time this month the site has been down. The first time was because of server problems.
