Last Tuesday, during or immediately after my appearance on Fox News Channel to discuss the Mohammed Cartoons, this blog was hit by a large, foreign-based denial of service attack. Last night, my hosting service notified me that it is receiving ongoing threats from individuals vowing to take down this site–and others along with it–which will presumably continue until I take down the cartoons. For now, we are on guard and continuing with business as usual. But you should know there’s something much wider and deeper going on: 

I. Security Pro News reports on the latest Islamist hacker attacks spurred by Cartoon Jihad:

Muslum hackers continue their retaliatory assault on Danish websites over the political cartoons run in Danish newspapers last year and more recently in other European publications. As this story is being written, the number is up to 1819 Danish site alone and continues to rise.The defaced sites contain messages aimed at various western folks carry a message attacking people who the hackers feel insult their religion of Islam. One site, beetlejuice.dk, was hacked by Iranian hackers calling themselves the Ashiyane Defacers Digital Security Team. This would seem to be a bit of self-promotion by the group. On this site, they left a message in different languages saying, “We are Muslims and We Cannot Let Anyone to Insult to Islam.” The Ashiyane team even sent a note to Zone-H to make sure they got credit to the appropriate hackers…

 

The attacks are coming from all over; last week, a Tampa, Fla.-based hosting company took down a hacking site that had targeted the Jyllands-Posten, the Danish newspaper that originally published the 12 Mohammed Cartoons.
