Hackers in Pakistan have declared a cyber jihad on the US and Britain, only days after the FBI issued a warning predicting as much. Earlier this week, Pakistani hacker group GForce defaced the website of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Center, part of the US Department of Commerce, leaving a message promising more of the same type of attacks.

    The FBI warning, issued last Friday, said: "Many Muslim groups around the world have significant experience in launching sophisticated and sustained cyber attacks. "In this context, a variety of pro-Muslim hacker groups, such as the G-Force Pakistan, The Pakistan Hackerz Club or Doktor Nuker, could use these tactics against the US and its allies."
