Hackers Discuss Retaliatory Cyberstrikes
The official Web site of the Presidential Palace of the Islamic State of Afghanistan was unreachable today, after its address was published in several Internet newsgroups.
"Let the Afghan government know what you think about them harboring Bin Laden," wrote one participant in talk.guns.politics.
Similarly, the homepage of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan has been frequently inaccessible today, despite a statement at the site from president general Pervez Musharraf condemning the attacks. The site's address was posted Tuesday to an Internet newsgroup named alt.hackers.malicious in a message entitled "Pakistani government LOVES trojans."
Attempts to reach operators of the two sites, which may be under a denial of service attack, were unsuccessful.
