Hackers 'lash out' at Islamic sites

Hackers have begun attacking Web sites connected to Afghanistan's Taliban rulers and to other Islamic nations including Iran, prompting the FBI to issue warnings to system administrators everywhere to tighten up their security.

Hackers have begun attacking Web sites connected to Afghanistan's Taliban rulers and to other Islamic nations including Iran, prompting the FBI to issue warnings to system administrators everywhere to tighten up their security. On Monday, hackers who call themselves 'The Dispatchers' defaced the Web site belonging to the Iranian government's Ministry of the Interior. The group says it is composed of people of "all races and of many countries, not just Americans," and is targeting "every place that poses a possible threat to or safety of our friends and family all over the world.." Current targets of 'The Dispatchers' are those nations who, it says, support terrorism and "terrorist groups." According to computer experts, the official Web site of the Presidential Palace of Afghanistan (www.afghangovernment.org) was taken offline after computer attackers sent so many requests for information that the site became inaccessible to traffic, in what is called a denial of service (DoS) attack. The FBI's National Infrastructure Protection Center (NIPC) warned there could be an opportunity for significant collateral damage to any computer network and telecommunications infrastructure that does not have current countermeasures in place. Some Taliban-related sites have been defaced to include mock "Wanted" posters of Saudi exile Osama bin Laden.
Also last week, the NIPC warned that in addition to politically motivated hacking, documents are being circulated that pretend to contain information on the attacks but which are actually viruses.
