Recently five of the most popular pro-Islamic terrorist websites were disabled for nearly two weeks. This effort involved hacking into the server containing message and administrative files and doing some serious damage. No one took credit for the attacks. The site administrators blamed the attacks on “enemies of Islam”. Usually, such attacks are explained away as “technical problems.” But these attacks were extensive and persistent and word got out that it was indeed an attack and not just a technical problem. This sort of thing is becoming more common. Last year, British intelligence (MI6) hacked into al Qaeda’s online magazine (“Inspire”) and quietly replaced bomb making instructions with cupcake recipes and removed or modified other information. There have been a growing number of similar attacks on pro-terrorist sites, indicating a combination of official (by military or intelligence agency) attacks along with anti-terrorist hackers.
