Muslim Cartoon Protests Hit the Internet

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:28 pm

Thousands of Web sites in Denmark and Europe have been hacked and defaced in apparent retaliation for the publication of cartoons satirizing the Prophet Muhammad.

According to Zone-H.org, an outfit that tracks server intrusions worldwide, more than 600 attacks against Web servers in Denmark have been recorded. Servers in Israel and Europe have also been breached with pro-Islam messages denouncing the cartoons.

Internet security vendor F-Secure has published screenshots of the defacements, which carry a strong anti-Danish tone and support for the angry demonstrations that have erupted around the world.

One group calling itself the “Internet Islamic Brigade” posted an image of the London bombings on a popular Danish Web forum, threatening a similar attack “very soon.”
