Denmark subject of cyber-attacks

Most people following current affairs are probably by now aware, that a boycot of all things Danish (and Norwegian and Swedish, too, in some instances) is spreading in the ME. What hasnt been reported is, that Denmark has likewise come under cyber attack. From the paper Politiken friday:

Hacker attack paralyzed news media

A large number of Danish papers´ web versions have crashed. Suspicions immediately center on the hacker attacks being because of the Mohammed-drawings in Jyllands-Posten. ..

All the web media hit are hosted on the same servers at the internet company Metropol Online, owned by Berlingske (Danish publishing house). ..

Among the media hit is the homepage of Jyllands-Postens, www.jp.dk, which creates suspicions, that hackers are trying to hit the paper as part of the row over the papers´ Mohammed-drawings.

Casper Bruun Møller, team leader at Metropol Online, suspects, that it is a hacker attack.


"I cant say for certain, that it is an attack on jp.dk, but somebody is trying to bombard us with so many electronic requests, that we have a suspicion that it is a hacker attack", he says.


Other than Jyllands-Posten, also berlingske.dk, bt.dk, aok.dk and a number of local papers were hit by the attack, that overloaded the homepages to such an extent that they werent accessible for most of the evening. ..

Last night the media conglomerate JP/Politikens Hus, that amongst others publishes Jyllands-Posten, was also hit.

Jyllands-Posten has, for the last fourteen days, received 500-600 mails each day with content that relates directly to the 12 Mohammed-drawings, and during the night leading up to thursday, JP/Politikens Hus was hit by 75.000 spammails sent to an internal mail address.

The many mails delayed the mail systems for several hours, and the conglomerate´s IT-technicians are certain, that the many thousand mails hail from the Middle East.


And from the same paper sunday:

New hacker attack paralyzes Jyllands-Posten

The web version of Jyllands-Posten is off-line. Hackers pulled off another large attack on the website of the paper.

The web version of the paper Jyllands-Posten, www.jp.dk, has again been nocked to the ground. The web paper is under attack by hackers.

A new so-called distributed "denial of the service"-attack has hit the home page of Jyllands-Posten. The technical term means, that attackers in different parts of the world take control of computers all over the world. ..

These computers bombard the homepage with so many simultaneous requests, that it finally crashes.

So says Casper Bruun Møller, teamleader at Metropol Online, the internet company owned by Berlingske (Danish publishing house), on whose server Jyllands-Posten web version is located.

"Over the last couple days, there have been several distributed "denial of service" attacks against the homepage of Jyllands-Posten. We had a smallish attack early friday, a larger one friday evening, and not there is another attack brewing", says Casper Bruun Møller. ..

Since the attacks come from different computers all over the world, it is hard to find the source, which is why Casper Bruun Møller doesnt want to comment on, whether the attacks might be due to the papers´ Mohammed-drawings.

He says, that they currently are working on sorting out the enormous traffic directed at the site. And he hopes, that the home page will be running smoothely again later in the day.


What hasnt filtered through to the media, even the Danish one, is that the rightwing blogosphere was also hit hard by hacker attacks from the ME. The largest blog Uriasposten (still recovering - may not load for you) was taken over and defaced with amongst others a Saudi flag friday. The blog Filtrat was similarly attacked sunday, though without being defaced by arab content.

Screencaps and more on the blog-attacks shortly.

UPDATE:

As promised, and courtesy of the blog ENOUGH!, here are screencaps of the blog Uriasposten as defaced friday:



According to Islam in Europe via ENOUGH!, the text reads as follows:

First page, under a Saudi flag:

Allah the greatest and merciful Allah

Oh messenger of Allah (ie, Muhammed)

The forward infiltration is complete

Second page:

Allah the greatest and merciful Allah

Oh messenger of Allah (ie, Muhammed)

This is the simple answer for every insolence/insult to the loved one

pray to god for him and for peace

and give this infiltration and this step.. to every muslim

infiltration is over

Hacked by

The forward infiltration is complete

How many ways can you spell L-O-S-E-R-S?

It is so telling of their belief system--they are completely intolerant of any type of satire.

As eyesallaround pointed out, they dish out much worse than they receive. Maybe we can remedy that.

As another poster suggested, it is time to publish these cartoons in every nation who values freedom---then they can BOYCOTT THAT!

"we being muslims don't portrate any prophet(like cheses)becuse we can;t if we say something or draw something like that we will be excliminated from islam".

That is actually not true. Muhammed has been portrayed lots of times by moslems.

Besides, neither the artists nor Jyllands-Postens editors were moslems, so why cant they portray him?

"i wish to show my anger & hate with my nick".

Of course you do. But where does that anger and hate come from?

"i just requist u guys to just read the history and u will get to know that islam didn't spread with sward & not by force".

Do you know anything about history? How did Muhammed come to rule Meccah? Palestine? Syria? Egypt? Libya etc etc etc?

"the evidence is the exisitance of 10 million christians in arabian countries".

By that reasoning, Israel never spread by the sword since more than 1 million moslems live in Israel.

I know that Im not a whore, so I just think that you dont know what you are speaking about. As a result, I dont care what you say. At least if you call me a whore without knowing anything about me.

What beats me is, that if you believe in your god, why dont you trust in him standing up for himself and his alleged prophet?

Isnt it a rather weak god when he needs you to stand up for him?

"thats what u think that u are not a whore".

No, actually I know that.

"what if i publish ur pic in the newspaper depecting as a whore how will u prove it the that u r not a whore".

I dont have to. The burden of evidence is on you, since you are making the accusation. It depends on you passing it off as the truth, though.

"all i m saying is wright what is true don't wright what u think is true.."

Since islam bans the drawing of him, how would you know when he is portrayed in the wrong way?

"look at the history mame if u know only two countries in command of SALAHUDIN defeated the entire forces of europe in 1100"

Ehm.....no! Saladdin was only born in 1137 or 38. So how can he take Jerusalem before he was born?

"it was from the help of ALLAH other wise it was imposible to beat them".

Oh, so crusaders are supermen, now? Saladdin beat the crusaders because he was superior to them in numbers. Its as simple as that. He had about 65-70.000 men against the 58.000 crusaders.

If you want a graphic presentation of the superior resources Saldaddin had, look at this map: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Ayyubid.png

The red parts are Saladdins, the pink ones the crusaders´.

"and if u guys beleive in libarty of press how about hollucast images. they r same then y they r banned"

They are not banned in Denmark.

"in ur little head there is a huge brain (offcourse not used much)u r being programmed hollucast images r in differnt league".

Of course they are in a different league. How can you equate drawing a pedophile, mass murderer and simple bandit with killing 5,7 million people?

""That is actually not true. Muhammed has been portrayed lots of times by moslems. "

name one provide picture as an evidence".

Quite a few examples are here: http://www.zombietime.com/mohammed_image_archive/islamic_mo_full/

""By that reasoning, Israel never spread by the sword since more than 1 million moslems live in Israel. "

they were alowed to come back by muslims and they came from all over the world".

They werent "allowed" to come back by the moslems, but by the British. The moslems tried their best to kill all the jews they could get their hands on. Example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riots_in_Palestine_of_1920

"muslims were there 1st"

Jews came to Palestine in the 1200s BC - 3200 years ago. Islam was founded by Muhammed in the 600s AD - 1400 years ago. So the Jews have been t here 1800 years longer than the moslems.

"they didn't had a fight with jewish when they came to conqure jeruselem for the 1st time read history".

Of course not. The Byzantines had banned jews from Jerusalem.

""Do you know anything about history? How did Muhammed come to rule Meccah? Palestine? Syria? Egypt? Libya etc etc etc?"

all by spreading islam peacefuly"

Uhuh. Battles initiated by moslems under Muhammed:

623 - Battle of Waddan
• 623 - Battle of Safwan
• 623 - Battle of Dul-'Ashir
• 624 - Muhammad and converts begin raids on caravans to fund the movement.
• 624 - Battle of Badr
• 624 - Battle of Bani Salim
• 624 - Battle of Eid-ul-Fitr and Zakat-ul-Fitr
• 624 - Battle of Bani Qainuqa'
• 624 - Battle of Sawiq
• 624 - Battle of Ghatfan
• 624 - Battle of Bahran
• 625 - Battle of Uhud.
• 625 - Battle of Humra-ul-Asad
• 625 - Battle of Banu Nudair
• 625 - Battle of Dhatur-Riqa
• 626 - Battle of Badru-Ukhra
• 626 - Battle of Dumatul-Jandal
• 626 - Battle of Banu Mustalaq Nikah
• 627 - Battle of the Trench
• 627 - Battle of Ahzab
• 627 - Battle of Bani Quraiza
• 627 - Battle of Bani Lahyan
• 627 - Battle of Ghaiba
• 627 - Battle of Khaibar
• 630 - Battle of Hunsin.
• 630 - Battle of Tabuk

For a religion spreading peacefully, islam certainly did fight a lot of battles.

"HE had to leave meccah .migrate towards madina and when he came back to conqure mecca he forgived everyone and the only punishment was to teach every eneducated muslim and then they will be free".

Two words: Banu Qurayza

""Of course you do. But where does that anger and hate come from?"

from ur behaviours even though u have commited a mistake yet u guys r not even saying sorry".

You think Jyllands-Posten made a mistake. I dont.


"by making serious alligations & having no proves still repating it".

You want proof that moslems engage in terrorism? Go here: http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

Scroll down a bit until you come to the list. Close to 4200 islamic terror attacks since 911.

Each climber on Mount Everest has his/her specific motivations for climbing, but most would agree that there are many great reasons to climb it. Obviously, climbing to the highest point on Earth is an impressive accomplishment, and the highlight of many climbers’ careers. The views from the summit are unparalleled, the Nepali/Sherpa culture is amazing, and the Everest area is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Above all, most climbers would agree that climbing Everest is the ultimate way to push their limits and test themselves in one of the most extreme places on the planet.
